Programs that meet the following regulatory description of educational programs:
Designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation,
Advertised as meeting such requirement.
Departments are asked to complete the Program State/Territory Determination Matrix with their determination for each state, district, and territory and provide their determination to email@example.com.
The Office of the Registrar will collect each program's determination to ensure the University is compliant with these new federal regulations. The Office of the Registrar will request updates regarding your program's determination on an annual basis in the spring semester to coincide with the yearly catalog updates. However, we expect departments to provide updates if the determination changes at any time throughout the year.
The state by state determination is to be made public and listed on a webpage that is readability accessible from the program website.
Disclosure statements templates have been created for departmental use. The statements have been reviewed and approved by the Office of General Counsel for departmental use. The statements should not be altered; however, it is permissible to add pertinent information regarding licensure (i.e., experience requirements). Please use the General and Direct Disclosure Templates to implement the delivery of the required disclosures.
You are to post a general disclosure that shows your determination for all states/territories. Our recommendation is that the general disclosure be placed on a central location on your college/department website to ensure your program can be linked directly to the disclosure information. It should be easily accessible to your prospective and current students.
The URL of where the public disclosure is located must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To view examples of general/public disclosures, you may visit Texas A&M University Professional Licensure or Certification Programs. The list of programs leading to professional licensure or certification will direct you to each program's general disclosure and state/territory determination.
Direct disclosures must be made to prospective and current students located in states where you determine that the program’s curriculum does not meet state requirements, or a determination has not been made.
Disclosures are to be provided to students based on their physical location.
For purposes of the required disclosures, current students' locations shall be determined by a student's self-reported location from Howdy. As part of the class registration process, all students are required to provide the location of where they will be physically located when taking the course for the semester and are obligated to update if they relocate. Prospective students' locations shall be determined from the state listed on the student's application for admission or from the contact information you collect from prospects.
Compass reports have been created that captures current students' location responses by term. The name of the report is PWS_LOCATION_HOWDY_RESPONSE_XX, where 'XX' is the two-character college code. The reports can be accessed through the Compass Report Repository, and they contain a list of all students and the program they are pursuing within the specified college.
If you do not have access to the report, a request can be made through your department's PAA. You should request the associated college "Group Name" to access the location report for your college.
Please use existing reports that you may have from the Office of Admissions or other resources at your disposal to gather prospective student locations.
