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.
