Each state has different requirements for licensure. Post University does not guarantee licensure, and there are licensure requirements outside of education. It is ultimately the responsibility of individual students to be in charge of their own licensure process and to make sure that all requirements are met in obtaining licensure. Post University does not speak on behalf of any licensing board or body.
