Professional Licensure Resources for Students Not Located in Alabama

The Professional Licensure Directory on the NC-SARA website ( is a contact list for inquiring about licensure requirements in the 50 states and territories.

The WCET-SAN network provides some information on professional licensure:

The following educational programs are designed to meet educational requirements for specific professional licenses or certifications that are required for employment in certain occupations in the State of Alabama. For each of these programs, the College has not determined if program completion is sufficient to meet the licensure requirements for employment in particular occupations in states other than Alabama, and the College has not determined if the program curriculum meets the educational requirements for licensure or certification in states other than Alabama. Students located in states other than Alabama are encouraged to use the following resources to determine the professional licensure or certification requirements of the state(s) where they intend to pursue employment in an occupation related to a listed program. Bishop State has developed a series of tables to provide this information that will continuously be updated once information becomes available or changes. If you are interested in learning about professional licensure or certification requirements specific to your program and your specified state of residency, please review the tables below: (LINKS ARE CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION)
