Moving Out of State

This page is designed for candidates who have completed an approved licensure program at Framingham State University and are now seeking licensure in another state. Most states have specific procedures in place for applicants who hold a license from another state, and many now require verification that the applicant has completed an approved licensure program. Framingham State University will provide verification for you only if you have completed all requirements for an approved licensure program at FSU.
