Notice about Professional Licensure
You are applying for admission to a program that may lead to professional licensure. The following questions relate to your potential ability to receive licensure.
- Have you ever been convicted of a felony or crime(s) other than minor traffic offenses? Yes No
- Have you ever been denied licensure for the profession for which you might apply for licensure or had discipline imposed by another state's licensing board? Yes No
- Have you ever had a civil suit judgment entered against you or entered into an adverse civil settlement? Yes No
If you answered "yes" to any of the questions above, it is possible that you may be denied licensure at the conclusion of the degree program to which you are applying. Please review the licensure requirements specific to the discipline by contacting the specific licensing board. It is your responsibility to understand the criteria necessary for licensure and to ensure compliance with those criteria. If you have any questions about the licensure requirements and your ability to be licensed, please contact Ms. Marilyn Wark for Speech Language Pathology and Dr. Jennifer Taylor for Audiology. Also, you should be aware that criminal convictions may make you ineligible to participate in any clinical experiences included in your program, therefore necessitating your removal from the program and/or impacting your ability to successfully complete course and program requirements.
Your signature on your CSDCAS application shall serve as your acknowledgment that you are aware of the potential impact if you answer yes to any of the questions above, that you have conducted due diligence in determining your potential eligibility for licensure, and that you are aware that certain factors may prevent your eligibility for licensure.
