State Authorization and Disclosures

All applicable Anderson University academic programs prepare students to be licensed and/or practice in South Carolina. In order to comply with regulations regarding distance education and professional licensure, AU is required to make the following disclosures. While we have worked to communicate with each state as noted on this page, we cannot confirm whether all programs meet requirements for professional licensure or eligibility to practice outside of the State of South Carolina.

Please contact applicable licensure board(s) in any state you may want to pursue licensure or practice prior to beginning the academic program in order to determine whether the program meets that state’s eligibility requirements. It is ultimately the student's responsibility to confirm program eligibility for in any state outside South Carolina.
