Out-of-State Licensure Information for the University of Southern Indiana

Requirements for licensure and certification vary by profession and by state. USI has reviewed the educational requirements for each state and licensing agency to determine if the academic program here at USI meets the educational requirements to be eligible for licensure/certification in each state or not. Please note that some states may have additional requirements for licensure, such as residency requirements, additional non-academic certifications, etc. that USI cannot determine. We encourage you to check with your state's licensing agency for all requirements needed to obtain licensure.

Should you require more information, such as needing a contact for a board of a program that is undetermined to meet licensure standards, please click the state abbreviation to find the exhaustive list of contacts. This may help you answer questions related to licensure, such as whether additional costs, examinations, or interviews will be required. You may also contact the program here at USI for additional guidance.   

Beginning July 1, 2024, any student admitted into a licensure program that is completed by attending on-campus courses will meet the educational requirements for obtaining licensure in the State of Indiana.  These programs are identified in the following list of programs as On-Campus. If you wish to obtain licensure in another state, you will need to contact your individual state licensing agency for additional information on licensure in your state.   

If using a mobile device, please note you may need to drag the table from left to right to see all of the information available.
