State Authorization and Licensure Disclosures

All applicable Erskine College academic programs prepare students to be licensed and/or practice in South Carolina. In order to comply with regulations regarding distance education and professional licensure, Erskine is required to make the following disclosures. We cannot confirm whether all programs meet requirements for professional licensure or eligibility to practice outside of the State of South Carolina.

Please contact applicable licensure board(s) in any state you may want to pursue licensure or practice prior to beginning the academic program in order to determine whether the program meets that state’s eligibility requirements. It is ultimately the student’s responsibility to confirm program eligibility for any state outside South Carolina.
