      Public Information

      Dear Program Director, In mid-July, the CoARC was made aware of a federal policy that went into effect on July 1, requiring all institutions to make public whether a program will fulfill educational requirements for specific professional licensure or certification. These requirements apply to all programs offered via all modalities (distance education and not). Institutions are required to disclose, for each state, whether or not the program meets such requirements, or whether the institution had not made such a determination. The CoARC acknowledges that each state has somewhat different specific licensure requirements.  To help our programs address these federal requirements, we provide the following resources as well as the attached document:    Available Resources Licensure Disclosures: Implementation Handbook for Institutional Compliance with the 2019 Federal RegulationsState Authorization and Professional Licensure  - The Intersection of State Authorization Agencies and Professional Licensing BoardsState Authorization and Professional Licensure 2 - Institutional Disclosures Regarding State Authorization and Professional Licensure-Track Programs   Sample Disclosures   Feel free to contact me with any specific questions regarding this notification.   Best Regards,   -Tom
