The curriculum for programs customarily leading to licensure at Joyce University have been designed to meet the educational portion of licensure/certification requirements in Utah as well as preparing students to apply for licensure exams in the State of Utah. The licensure boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification for their state. The state professional licensing boards make the ultimate decision as to whether or not an individual will be eligible to sit for licensure or be employed in the profession after graduating from a program or obtaining a license in another state based on the rules and regulations in place at the time the individual submits an application for licensure.
Prior to enrolling in any program at Joyce University, prospective students living and/or working outside of the United States should confirm with the appropriate certifying agency whether successful completion of any degree program at Joyce University will meet the credentialing requirements of the country in which they intend to seek employment, as to certain types of employment or for advanced/specialized educational programs.
Relocating during the course of a program to another state may impact if the student can remain in the program or meet the state licensure requirements. Prior to considering relocation, please contact the Joyce University Registrar to discuss state authorization and licensure eligibility requirements.
Per 34 C.F.R. § 668.43(c)(3)(ii), institutions must provide the Department of Education with the institutional determination of where the student is located upon request. To achieve this an institution must establish policies or procedures to consistently determine where students are located. Institutions must determine where a student is located both at the time of initial start date and after receiving information provided by the student indicating that the student’s location has changed.
Joyce University collects location information from students as part of the enrollment process wherein students are asked to provide their physical location. This information is collected every semester. Prospective students and current students who move to another state will be notified by email if the curriculum for the program in which they plan on enrolling in or are enrolled in does not meet the state’s educational requirements for licensure in the state or the curriculum for the program has not been determined to meet the state’s educational requirements for licensure in the state in which the student is located.
Please note that should a student choose to enroll in a restricted program in a particular state, there may be restrictions that could affect him/her.
Examples could include:
– The student may be unable to sit for local licensing in that state.
– The student may be ineligible for consumer protection in that state.
– The student may not be able to complete field placements (practicum, internship, clinical hours, etc.) in that state. This could affect licensure or recognition of the degree to meet particular requirements in that state.
