Professional Licensure Disclosure

The U. S. Code of Federal Regulations require disclosures by institutions regarding educational
requirements for programs leading to professional licensure or certification regardless of modality. The
institution must make readily available to enrolled and prospective students information about whether
programs leading to professional licensure or certification meet educational requirements.

Before enrolling in a program intended to satisfy a particular state’s educational requirements for the
practice of a particular occupation, students are strongly encouraged to review the information under
the respective program. Students are also encouraged to contact the appropriate state licensing agency
to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of their home state.
SARA institutions are required to provide related disclosures; institutions that participate in federal
student financial aid programs must meet similar federal requirements.

If Heartland Community College has not determined whether a program meets the educational
requirements for licensure or certification outside the state of Illinois, you should contact the
appropriate state licensing entity to determine whether it meets the educational requirements for
licensure or certification in the state you live or work.

NC-SARA also has created and maintained the Professional Licensure Directory, which provide contact
information for five programs that lead to a professional licensure. These programs have the most
enrollments per the data provided by SARA participating institutions.

1. Counseling
2. Nursing
3. Psychology
4. Social Work
5. Teacher Education

This resource does not house regulations or requirements and is exclusively general contact
information. Students may find this contact information helpful in their research on state licensure
requirements in their locations. NC-SARA updates the contact information twice annually.
Heartland Community College has determined that its relevant programs comply with Illinois Licensure
requirements. The College has not yet made a determination of its programs meet the licensure
requirements of the other 49 states, territories, nor the District of Columbia.

This information is subject to change. Last updated September 20, 2021.
