Professional Licensure Disclosures

New Mexico State University, Carlsbad (NMSU) programs leading to professional licensure are designed to meet New Mexico’s professional licensure education requirements. Completion of a New Mexico University, Carlsbad program may not meet educational requirements for licensure or certification in a state other than New Mexico.

Since each state and territory has different laws and regulations, graduates of NMSU Carlsbad programs may or may not be eligible for licensure in other U.S. states and territories. It is highly recommended that current and prospective students check with the state licensing board and the respective advisors of the program in which they intend to be licensed before they start an NMSU Carlsbad professional licensure program. Additional licensure requirements may include professional examinations, background checks, years of work experience, fingerprinting, etc.

NMSU Carlsbad will not be liable for any determination that is later found to be inaccurate. If you will be applying for licensure outside of NM, contact the appropriate licensing agency in that U.S. state or territory about licensure requirements.

Due to the different state/territory licensing requirements, relocating during a program can impact a student’s ability to continue a program, meeting eligibility requirements in another state, and/or receiving financial aid. If relocating, students should contact their program to check for state authorization and licensure eligibility requirements. New Mexico State University, Carlsbad is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Some programs offered at NMSU Carlsbad have specialized Accreditation.

The information is updated annually and on an as-needed basis. Since laws and regulations change it is recommended students check back regularly with the appropriate licensing board for current requirements.

The professional licensure information is provided in accordance with U.S. Federal Regulations, 34 CFR § 668.50 (2016 Rules), 34 CFR § 668.43 (2019 Rules), and NMSU’s membership in the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA).
