Moving Out of State
If you completed and approved licensure program at FSU, you are applying for a license in another state, and are asked to provide verification that you have completed an approved program, please select above link for instructions. Most states require some type of verification and have forms designed for this purpose.

Licensure Workshop Schedule and Workshop Slides
At the end of each semester, we hold workshops, by licensure groups, for new program completers applying for licensure.  Applying for licensure can be a tricky process and mistakes are not easily fixed. We understand that you have a busy schedule and ask that you make every effort to attend at the scheduled time.  Individual meetings are not possible.
