  • Below is a listing of Programs offered by Russell Sage College that typically lead to professional licensure. Please note some state licensing boards require additional requirements beyond education, which may include additional post-graduation examinations or experience, application and licensing fees, criminal background checks, reference checks, fingerprint submissions, etc. Continuing education may also be required for maintenance of certification/licensure. Make sure you understand and review any additional requirements.

    State licensing requirements are always subject to change at the discretion of the state licensing board. The college will routinely update this page, but we strongly recommend you inquire with the applicable state board to confirm your eligibility for licensure. For any questions regarding licensure, please contact the state/territory agency directly.

    Carefully review the educational prerequisites for your intended state/territory of licensure and whether our program meets those requirements for licensure. Use the agency contact information provided below to clarify or confirm any requirements. The college can provide initial guidance; it is ultimately your responsibility to stay informed with the state/territory where you intend to seek licensure to confirm all licensing/certification requirements.
