Each state has unique coursework, internship and degree requirements for licensing. The courses you need will depend on your prior education and experience. Generally, any additional course content areas are identified by the state licensing board or agency at the time of your license application. Capella’s licensure team has aligned our courses to many state required course content areas. Contact an enrollment counselor for more information.
Capella University offers licensure support to students in a degree
program. If you plan on taking individual courses toward licensure, be
aware that you are responsible for understanding and complying with
all state board requirements. While a Capella enrollment specialist
can recommend the courses you may need to meet your licensure needs,
you must receive approval from your state board or transferring
institution prior to enrollment.
*Capella University cannot guarantee licensure, endorsement, other
professional credential, or salary advancement. State licensing
regulations and professional standards vary; learners are responsible
for understanding and complying with the requirements of the state in
which they intend to work.
