Licensure programs at MSUM are designed to help you meet licensure requirements in Minnesota and North Dakota, but actual licensure is the function of the states, not of any college or university. Earning an academic degree does not lead automatically to state licensure. It is your responsibility to be aware of the requirements for the state in which you wish to work.
