Professional Licensure & Certification

Messiah University is approved to offer programs that may lead to licensure or certification in the state in which you reside or plan to reside.  It is important to note that licensing requirements vary by sate; and therefore completion of a Messiah program does not guarantee professional licensure.  It is recommended that students utilize our searchable database for specific information listed by state.  Please note: states revise their licensure requirements without notice. Messiah University will update information as it is known.  In addition, the University will perform an annual check of licensure requirements by state.
