PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE DISCLOSURE
Ameritech College of Healthcare offers programs leading to professional licensure within the State of Utah. States vary in what professions they require to be licensed and how licensure functions. Some states require an individual to graduate from an approved program. Others require an individual to “meet [the] certification requirements of a national organization”. A specific amount of training can also be required as well as passage of an exam based on a state requisite exam score. Often, licensed professionals must complete continuing education on an annual basis (National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, 2018).
The curriculum for programs customarily leading to licensure at Ameritech College have been designed to meet the licensure/certification requirements in Utah as well as preparing students to apply for licensure exams in the State of Utah. The licensure boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification for their state. Prospective and current students who intend to remain in, or return to or move to any state other than Utah need to review the professional licensure disclosures pertaining to their program and consult with the state professional licensing board. The state professional licensing boards make the ultimate decision as to whether or not an individual will be eligible to sit for licensure or be employed in the profession after graduating from a program or obtaining a license in another state based on the rules and regulations in place at the time the individual submits an application for licensure.
Relocating during the course of a program to another state may impact if the student can remain in the program, meet the state licensure requirements and/or continue to receive financial aid funding. Prior to considering relocation, please contact the Ameritech Financial Aid office to discuss state authorization and licensure eligibility requirements.
Prior to enrolling in any program at Ameritech College, prospective students living and/or working outside of the United States should confirm with the appropriate certifying agency whether successful completion of any degree program at Ameritech will meet the credentialing requirements of the country in which they intend to seek employment, as to certain types of employment or for advanced/specialized educational programs.

Per 34 C.F.R. § 668.43(c)(3)(ii), institutions must provide the Department of Education with the institutional determination of where the student is located upon request. To achieve this an institution must establish policies or procedures to consistently determine where students are located. Institutions must determine where a student is located both at the time of enrollment in an institution and after receiving information provided by the student indicating that the student’s location has changed.
Ameritech collects location information from students as part of the enrollment process wherein students are asked to provide their physical location. This information is collected every semester. Prospective students and current students who move to another state will be notified by email if the curriculum for the program in which they plan on enrolling in or are enrolled in does not meet the state’s educational requirements for licensure in the state or the curriculum for the program has not been determined to meet the state’s educational requirements for licensure in the state in which the student is located.
