Please be advised that in accordance with state and federal regulations, Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is required to provide the following information to prospective students considering enrollment in a degree program that customarily leads to professional licensure, as well as current students enrolled in these programs.

*PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE STATEMENT: At this time, we have not made a determination as to whether the Master of Science degree in Curriculum, Instruction and Technology meets the educational requirements for professional licensure in other states or territories outside of Florida. Thus, while completion of your NSU program of study may assist in preparing you for your future professional endeavors, we currently have not made a determination as to whether the program leads to professional licensure in the states or territories other than Florida. 

The licensing boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification for their state. Students who intend to return or move to any state other than Florida, or are enrolled in an online program and are physically located in a state other than Florida, need to review the professional licensure disclosures pertaining to their program and consult with the state professional licensing board.  The state professional licensing boards make the ultimate decision as to whether or not an individual will be eligible to sit for licensure based on the rules and regulations in place at the time the individual submits their application for licensure.

We encourage you to contact your applicable state licensing authority to familiarize yourself with the specific professional licensure requirements of your state. For licensing board contact information, please visit the State Department of Education Agencies webpage at
