Licensure and Certification Disclosures

The Department of Education’s Federal Regulations 34 CFR 668.43 (a)(5)(v) mandate that each institution inform students of whether their program curriculum, both distance education programs and face-to-face programs, meets the state requirements for each program that leads to licensure or certification.

Licensing Board Contact Information

If you live outside Missouri and are considering enrolling in an online program that leads to a professional license or certification, we highly recommended that you contact the appropriate state licensing agency in your state or the state where you intend to work to seek the most up-to-date information about state licensure requirements before beginning the program. The University of Missouri-Kansas City makes every effort to ensure licensure information is current; however, licensure regulations are frequently revised.

For licensing board contact information, licensure requirements and program approval status in the state of Colorado, please see below.
