University of California programs for professions that require licensure or certification are intended to prepare the student for California licensure and certification requirements.

The University of California has not determined whether its programs meet other states' educational or professional requirements for licensure and certification. Students planning to pursue licensure or certification in other states are responsible for determining whether, if they complete a University of California program, they will meet their state's requirements for licensure or certification.
