Professional Licensure

In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education for participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), Pueblo Community College (PCC) provides information pertaining to professional licensure and certification in correlation with programs offered at PCC that may lead to state licensure. 

Students are advised to review the following information BEFORE beginning a program at PCC that leads to professional licensure. Review the licensing information provided for the applicable program(s) below. While PCC endeavors to ensure this information is up to date, changes in licensure requirements can change at any time. Therefore, contact the appropriate licensing agency in Colorado or other U.S. states where licensure is intended. This will enable you to obtain the most up-to-date information about licensure requirements and confirm PCC’s program meets those requirements.

Only a select few of PCC’s programs are formally approved for professional licensure. However, while a program may not be formally approved in states outside of Colorado, it may still meet all or a portion of the “educational” requirements for licensure in other states and territories. PCC can only guarantee that the requirements for the state of Colorado are met with our programs. Therefore, it may be necessary for you to contact the licensing agency directly to find out if a PCC program will meet educational requirements in states other than Colorado.

Additionally, while progressing through any of these programs, PCC recommends that you check licensing agency requirements regularly to monitor whether they have changed in a manner that impacts your licensure plans.
