Requirements for professional licensure in fields such as accounting, education, and nursing vary from state to state. Immaculata University’s academic programs listed below are designed to meet Pennsylvania’s licensure requirements and may not meet requirements from other states. Before beginning any academic program that leads to licensure, IU highly recommends that you contact the appropriate state licensing board where you wish to seek licensure to determine whether the program you are considering will meet that state’s licensing requirements.

Completion of a IU degree program does not guarantee employment in any profession. Prior to enrollment, students are responsible for confirming all education, testing, and licensing requirements in their chosen field.
