Elmira College agrees to provide notifications to students related to professional licensure. Any institution approved to participate in SARA that offers courses or programs designed to lead to professional licensure or certification or advertised as leading to licensure must satisfy all federal requirements for disclosures regarding such professional licensure programs under 34 §C.F.R. 668.43.
For SARA purposes, institutions that are unable, after all reasonable efforts, to determine whether a program will meet state professional licensure requirements shall provide the student or applicant with current contact information for any applicable licensing boards, and advise the student or applicant to determine whether the program meets requirements for licensure in the state where the student is located. For additional information, students may visit the NC-SARA Professional Licensure Directory at nc-sara.org/professional-licensure-directory.
Requirements vary by state. Consequently, Elmira College strongly recommends that a prospective student contact the appropriate licensing agency or board in that student’s home state or territory – including states that are members of NC-SARA – BEFORE beginning any academic program or coursework. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm program eligibility for licensure in any state outside of New York.
Although Elmira College will soon be seeking New York State Education Department (NYSED) approval to add the distance education modality to its Master of Science in Education (MSEd) programs, courses in those programs will be offered in the distance education format pursuant to NYSED’s recent extension of distance education flexibility through the 2022-23 academic year. This means that Elmira College and other institutions across New York are permitted to offer or continue offering programs through distance education for the prescribed period without triggering the need to register those programs in the distance education format.
