Students are advised to be in close communication with their education advisors to ensure that both degree requirements and licensure requirements are met. Also, students seeking licensure in other states should contact the Department of Education in that state for their license requirements.
Only students who have completed their coursework with MUW can be recommended for licensure by the Office of Field Experience.
