New York State prides itself in the high quality of its licensed and certified professionals. For the protection of its citizens, each license and certificate has requirements that individuals must meet in order to be licensed or certified in New York State. Thus, each of SUNY’s academic programs that lead to licensure or certification are carefully designed to meet and exceed these State requirements. This is the role the SUNY system plays in protecting the public. Other states frequently have their own requirements, so if your ultimate goal is to practice your chosen profession in another state, this professional disclosure page will help you check your program in the links provided below to see what that state requires.
