SARA has no effect on State professional licensing requirements. Any Institution approved to participate in SARA that offers courses or 项目 designed to lead to 专业的许可 or certification or advertised as leading to Licensure must satisfy all federal requirements for disclosures regarding such 专业的许可 项目 under 34 §C.F.R. 668.43. 另外, 作为SARA的参与机构, Loyola makes all reasonable attempts to determine whether a Loyola licensure track program will meet state professional licensure requirements.
The 2019 Department of Education Higher Education Rule requires that Loyola provide 发布专业许可披露 by state for all Loyola licensure track 项目 regardless of modality. 1) A list of all states for which the institution has determined its curriculum 满足 国家学历要求 or certification. 2) A list of all States for which the institution has determined that its curriculum 不符合 国家学历要求. 3)该机构所服务的所有国家名单 还没有决定吗.
The Rule also requires that Loyola make direct individual written disclosures related to professional licensure when Loyola has been able to determine that a program 不符合 the state requirements for professional licensure or certification, or when Loyola has not been able to determine whether a program will meet state licensure requirements. 罗耀拉大学通过电子邮件做到这一点. 另外, we advise the student or applicant to determine whether the program 满足 requirements for Licensure in the State where the student or applicant is located.
