Texas Wesleyan has contacted state and territory licensing authorities to confirm that its programs meet the education requirements leading to professional licensure. Other requirements may include professional certification exams, background checks and work experience, among others.
While Texas Wesleyan will update the information here every May, requirements can change throughout the year. If you intend to practice outside of Texas, you should contact the appropriate licensing authority to verify whether Texas Wesleyan's programs meet licensure requirements before enrolling.

Student Location Notice
Professional licensure requirements vary by location and disclosures to students are required when a program does not meet the requirements within the student’s location. Determining student location is important to ensure Texas Wesleyan’s compliance with federal and state regulations requiring the University to disclose state-specific professional licensure information to students based on where they are located.
A student’s location is defined as the place in which a student is currently living (e.g. current address) at the time of enrollment in a professional or occupational licensure or certification program, not the student’s state of residency.
