The curriculum for programs at Dixie State University customarily leading to licensure have been designed to meet the licensure/certification requirements in Utah as well as preparing students to apply for licensure exams in the State of Utah (see the licensing website for more information regarding licensure in Utah). The licensure boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification for their state. Requirements may vary from state to state and may change at any time. Students who intend to use their DSU degree to secure licensure in any state other than Utah will need to review the professional licensure disclosures in that state pertaining to their program and consult with the state professional licensing board. For more information speak with a program advisor in the DSU academic department offering the program.
