At NC-SARA we hear frequently from institutions, states and territories about how best to handle professional licensure disclosure in the context of SARA institutional approvals. We hope to bring some efficiency to assist institutions in providing clearer and more accurate disclosures to all students.

NC-SARA has worked with the SARA State Portal Entities (SPEs) and regional compacts to create the Professional Licensure Directory, which provides contact information for five programs that lead to a professional license. We chose the programs with the most enrollments per the data provided by our participating institutions. At NC-SARA our data shows that the vast majority of the programs leading to licensure among participating institutions are in five fields:

  • Counseling
  • Nursing
  • Psychology
  • Social work
  • Teacher Education

This resource will NOT house regulations or requirements. It is exclusively general contact information. We will update the contact information twice annually. We hope that this Professional Licensure Directory helps in your regulatory compliance.

Professional licensure information for students can be found under the Student tab,
