Professional Licensure Disclosures

UT Austin makes every effort to ensure state licensure or certification information is current; however, state requirements may change. If you are planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in a state other than Texas, it is strongly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to seek information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements before beginning an academic program.

For more information on professional licensure requirements in the field, please contact Renee Acosta, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs or visit UT Austin’s professional licensure disclosure page.
