Licensure-Track Programs & Pass Rates

State Licensure Disclosures

The disclosure map and lists below show USD’s licensure-track programs and whether the program’s curriculum meets each State’s educational requirements for professional licensure or certification. USD makes every effort to ensure state licensure and certification information is current; however, state requirements may change after these disclosures have been made. You are strongly encouraged to contact your State’s licensure board (contact information is included on the map and lists) to review all licensure and certification requirements imposed by that state before beginning an academic program. If you don’t see a program listed that you think may lead to professional licensure or certification or if you have questions about baccalaureate minors, please contact the academic department offering your major or the Division of Continuing & Distance Education.

It is important to understand that should you change your program, your state of location, and/or where you intend to practice during your matriculation at USD, that the educational prerequisites can be very different based upon the state involved.

If you have additional questions, contact the Division of Continuing & Distance Education at 605-658-6152 or by email at
