Professional Licensing Disclosures

State Authorization & Professional Licensing Information

Florida Institute of Technology has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). Institutions that are a member of NC-SARA are authorized to provide online education to students from all SARA states. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. 

As a member of NC-SARA and other state authorizations, Florida Tech is currently authorized to offer online education in all 50 states, commonwealths, and territories. However, NC-SARA does not cover professional licensure. Based on the professional licensure guidelines, specific programs may not be allowed to offer education or educational experiences in certain states. Florida Tech works to confirm if programs meet the educational prerequisites for professional licensure or certification outside the state of Florida. State licenses or certifications may be necessary for certain occupations or employment, and requirements vary depending on the state or territory in which a student intends to work. Requirements can include not only education but also work experience, professional exams, background checks, or other stipulations. It is important for students to be aware of any such requirements that could impact education or career plans and to stay informed, as requirements can change. For all programs that lead to a professional license/certification, we highly recommend that you contact the appropriate state licensing agency in the state in which you reside or the state where you intend to work to seek the most up-to-date information about state licensure requirements before beginning a program.

All professional licensure programs offered by Florida Institute of Technology are designed to meet the requirements of the state of Florida and all accrediting bodies for recommending candidates for licensure/certification. Students who wish to practice in a state other than Florida may or may not have additional requirements to complete prior to applying for a license in the state of their choice. 

Florida Institute of Technology strongly encourages all students and prospective students to check the information for their state or territory and contact the appropriate licensing authority for information and guidance.
