OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY LICENSURE DISCLOSURE
The curriculum for programs at Ameritech College are designed to meet the licensure/certification requirements in Utah and prepare students to sit for licensure exams in Utah. The various licensure boards in each state are responsible for setting requirements for licensure/certification in their state and distance students with intent of returning or moving to any state other than Utah should be aware of the unique requirements for that state.
Please note that should a student choose to enroll in a restricted program in a particular state, there may be restrictions that could affect him/her. Examples could include:
- The student may be unable to sit for local licensing in that state.
- The student may be ineligible for consumer protection in that state.
- The student may not be able to complete field placements (practicum, internship, clinical hours, etc.) in that state. This could affect licensure or recognition of the degree to meet particular requirements in that state.
Prospective students who intend to relocate to a different state at any point after admission to a degree program are advised to review the information below to see if Ameritech’s programs meet the unique requirements for education and licensure in the new state.
If students move during the course of their studies to a state where their program is restricted, they are taking a risk that they may not be able to complete that program or use any of the credit earned in that program should they decide to pursue licensing in that field in that state.
Please note that the risks listed above are not exhaustive. Students should verify with their state’s professional licensing board that their plans are not impacted by these risks.

Disclaimer: Students should review the specific academic requirements for the program in which they are enrolling, including those related to practicum/internship as well as pre-qualifications for licensure such as the need for a criminal background check. We highly recommend that students contact the applicable licensure board(s) in their state of residence or in the state where they intend to obtain a license before beginning an academic program that results in licensure and prior to beginning any internship/practicum.
Many licensure boards have additional requirements beyond successful degree completion to obtain a license. Please be advised that state laws, regulations, and policies may change at any time. Changes in requirements can impact the program’s ability to meet educational requirements for licensure. It is the responsibility of the student completing the licensure program to check with the licensing board(s) in their state of residence or in the state in which they intend to obtain a license for the most recent information and requirements.
Ameritech shall not be held liable if the student is unable to qualify for licensure or certification in any jurisdiction or cannot obtain a practicum/internship location.
