Mount Saint Mary's University (MSMU) is physically located in the state of California. State authorization is what allows Mount Saint Mary's University and other institutions to conduct certain educational activities outside of their home state. Every state has its own regulations that we must follow in order to conduct educational activities in that state.
There are certain careers or fields that require a professional license. Licensure is the act of granting a license to practice a profession (Merriam-Webster, 2018). Licensure requirements to be licensed in a given field may vary by state. MSMU’s professional licensure programs are designed to prepare students for a license in the state of California. For students who wish to practice in a state other than California, you may or may not have additional requirements you must complete prior to applying for your license in your state of choice. Please visit the Disclosure section for more program specific information and/or contact information.
The SANsational Award recognizes outstanding efforts by SAN member institutions and organizations in developing a high-quality, comprehensive solution to a challenging state authorization issue.
In 2018, Mount Saint Mary’s University received TWO SANsational awards in two of the three categories:
- Licensure Programs - Notifications and disclosures for professional licensure program status in each state.
- Location - How do you identify where your students are located?
