Per federal regulation 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v) institutions are required to publicly disclose whether programs that are designed to lead to professional licensure or certification meet the educational requirements of all U.S. states and territories. Mississippi’s community colleges offer several programs leading to professional licensure and agreed to collaborate, where applicable, to reduce duplication of effort and to ensure system-wide compliance with federal laws, regulations, and the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement. Through reasonable and good faith effort, research has been done to determine whether or not each program meets licensure requirements, does not meet licensure requirements, or has not yet been determined for each state. Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with Mississippi’s community colleges. These requirements, state laws, regulations, and policies can change at any time. If a program does not meet requirements or is undetermined, students should contact the Board in each state for more information.
