Professional Licensure and Certification

At this time, UM is continuously working to determine if all of its current programs that may lead to licensure or certification meet the prerequisites for professional licensure or certification application in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. UM has developed a series of tables to provide this information that will continuously be updated once information becomes available or changes. If you are interested in learning about professional licensure or certification requirements specific to your program and your specified state of residency, please review the tables below. If you are in need of additional information UM encourages you to contact Mary Howard at 1-205-665-6352 or visit to review NC-SARA’s professional licensure directory. Prospective and enrolled students may also receive direct disclosures via email as necessary. It is UM’s goal to provide transparent information, especially regarding professional licensure and certification.
