  • Professional Licensure Disclosure

    Federal regulations require the College to disclose whether its educational programs meet U.S. jurisdictions’ educational requirements for licensure (34 CFR 668.43(a)(6)& 34 CFR 668.72(n)). While Carolinas College clinical programs employ best practices in healthcare education to prepare students for professional licensure, certification, and practice, the educational requirements to sit for credentialing examinations and to practice vary from one state to the next.

    Prospective and enrolled students are strongly encouraged to follow up with the licensing board or regulatory agency in the state/territory in which they wish to practice. Carolinas College Program Chairs are available for guidance and assistance.

    The following programs have researched state/territory requirements and determined to the best of their abilities whether current program curricula meet credentialing educational requirements. Details can be obtained by clicking on each program link:
