Professional Licensure Disclosure

Professional Licensure Disclosure

Gulf Coast State College is approved to offer programs that may lead to professional licensure or certification in Florida. GCSC does not guarantee that programs which fulfill Florida licensing requirements will satisfy the criteria of professional licensure boards in other states, as each state has unique requirements for professional licensure or certification which are subject to change at any time and without notice.  

Enrolled students and prospective students are strongly encouraged to contact their state’s licensure entity to review all licensure or certification requirements imposed by their state(s) of choice. Please review the licensing board for guidance on the professional licensure or certification requirements for programs in your home state or where you would like to practice professionally.

GCSC is required by the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) to disclose whether your prospective program meets the professional licensure or certification requirements in other states. NC-SARA does not address professional licensure issues. Please select your program of interest below.
