Mandatory Certification Disclosure for U.S. States and Territories

New York State Certification & Licensure

New York State prides itself on the high quality of its certified and licensed professionals.

For the protection of its citizens, each certificate and license have requirements that individuals must meet to be certified or licensed in New York State.  

SUNY’s academic programs leading to certification or licensure are carefully designed to meet and exceed these state requirements. This is a role SUNY plays in protecting the public.  

Other states frequently have their own requirements, so if your goal is to practice in another state, this disclosure will help you check to see what that state requires.
