General Frequently Asked Question

Licensure & Certification—Will This Course Count?

Additional Requirements

While courses in many of our programs are approved and recognized by different agencies organizations and professional associations, your successful completion does not guarantee that you will obtain a particular license or certification.

Standards for Required Credits

Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the University of California and these requirements can change at any time.

Out of State Licensure and Certification
