Professional Licensure

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville offers several programs leading to professional licensure within the State of Wisconsin. States vary in what professions they require to be licensed and how licensure functions. Some states require and individual to graduate from an approved program. Others require an individual to meet certification requirements of a national organization. A specific amount of training can also be required as well as passage of an exam based on a state requisite exam score. Often, licensed professionals must complete continuing education on an annual basis.

If a student is planning to apply for licensure in a state other than Wisconsin after completion of their program, the student should refer to the information below or contact the other state's appropriate licensing board to determine whether the UW-Platteville program meets licensure requirements in that state.

Please note that licensure requirements are always subject to change.
