HPSSS Stand-Alone Certificate Programs

Students considering enrolling in an academic program that customarily leads to professional license should first contact the appropriate licensing agency in the state in which they reside or plan to work to determine whether the academic program satisfies the requirements for licensure in that state. Because of varying requirements, National American University cannot assure that its programs satisfy the criteria of professional licensing authorities in all states or territories.

The stand-alone certificates in this section are NOT eligible for Title IV funding when taken outside of a full degree program.
