Program Licensure Certification Disclosure

Professional Licensure Disclosures

Federal regulations (34 §C.F.R. 668.43) that went into effect July 1, 2020 require institutions to provide a disclosure regarding educational requirements for professional licensure or certification. This disclosure is intended to share Clarkson University’s determination of whether the programs below, if successfully completed, would meet the requirements for state licensure.

This disclosure does not guarantee that any individual state licensure entity will approve or deny an application. Students seeking licensure are encouraged to contact their state’s licensure entity to determine the requirements for that state.


To be licensed as a Professional Engineer, all states require documentation of education or equivalent and accept a degree from an ABET accredited engineering program, in addition to passing exams and/or demonstrating sufficient work experience.
