Professional Licensure-Out-of-state students enrolled in a program leading to professional licensure

Professional Licensure
Eligibility for licensure and/or certification may involve more than successful degree completion. All Tri-County Community College academic programs prepare students to sit for applicable licensure in North Carolina.

In order to comply with U.S. Department of Education regulations regarding distance education and professional licensure, Tri-County Community College is required to make the following disclosure with respect to professional licensure outside the state of North Carolina:

Tri-County Community College cannot confirm whether a particular program meets requirements for professional licensure outside of the State of North Carolina.

Tri-County Community College has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). However, NC-SARA does not deal with professional licensing board approval for any courses or programs leading to professional licensure. If you are not a resident of North Carolina and you are taking an online course or hybrid program leading to professional licensure, please contact the dean of the degree program at Tri-Community College to discuss licensure options prior to beginning your course of study. Please contact the appropriate licensure board(s) in any state you may want to pursue licensure prior to beginning a TC academic program in order to determine whether the program meets licensure requirements.

Students may view the disclosure for each program or certificate to know which state Tri-County Community College’s curriculum

  • meets state educational requirements for licensure or certification,
  • does not meet state educational requirements for licensure or certification, or
  • has not made a determination.
