Under 34 CFR Sec. 668.43, new federal regulations have been adopted that create new disclosure requirements for professional licensure programs regardless of the mode of delivery in that the rules apply to both face-to-face and distance education programs.  Per the new rules, institutions are required to determine the states in which a student and prospective student is located for the purpose of disclosing state-specific professional licensure information to students based on the state in which a student is located.

Please see the information below if you are a prospective or current UWM student interested in pursuing professional licensure after graduation.

Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business

Accounting, BBA

Meeting The Education Requirements to take the CPA Exam.

Wisconsin

You do not need to be a resident of Wisconsin to take the CPA Exam as a Wisconsin Candidate. Once you pass the Exam, all states must honor the pass, but can add additional requirements such as additional coursework, experience, and an ethics exam.

BBA – Completing the BBA in accounting at UWM meets the Wisconsin education requirement. There is a provision in the Wisconsin law, Accy 2.303 (3) that allows students to take the Exam prior to graduation if they have 120 total credits including 24 credits in accounting and 24 credits in business and economics.

Many accounting majors go on to the fifth year MS – Professional Accounting program to gain additional coursework to prepare them for the content of the Exam and to gain a specialty in auditing or tax.

MS – Accounting students are qualified to take the exam upon graduation from the program. It may also be possible to take the Exam prior to graduation if the student completes 15 graduate or 24 Undergraduate credits in accounting and 15 graduate or 24 undergraduate credits in business and economics. The details are contained in Wisconsin law, Accy 2.203 (3)

All students must have at least 150 credits of coursework to be licensed in Wisconsin.

Illinois

To take the CPA Exam in Illinois, you must have completed 150 credit hours of education. That requirement is met if you earn the UWM MS – Accounting or MS-Professional Accounting degree.

The 150-credit requirement can also be met with a UWM BBA in accounting with additional credits to total 150. That includes at least 6 additional credits in accounting.

Students passing the CPA Exam in Wisconsin may still have to meet these requirements to be licensed in Illinois.

Other States

We do not take responsibility for the education requirements of other jurisdictions in the United States. Students should check with other states’ boards of accountancy.

School of Education

UW-Milwaukee offers 24 programs that lead to licensure under the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. UWM endorses individuals for initial, advanced, and supplementary licenses depending on the program. Please note that the programs are spread across five of schools. Applicants and others are encouraged to review information listed under Peck School of the Arts, College of Health Sciences, School of Information Studies, and Helen Bader School of Social Welfare if you do not find the license listed in this section. Additionally, please note that the School of Education has two sections. One is for initial licenses in education and the other section is for programs leading to administrator, pupil services, and advanced licenses.

Initial Teaching Licenses

Initial Teaching Licenses:

Educators who complete a preparation program approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and receive a license from the department are usually eligible to receive at least a one-year license from other states. Most states require that educators who were prepared in another state complete at least one state-specific requirement (e.g., course, test). The one-year or other temporary license gives educators the opportunity to work in a school while they complete the requirement(s).

Although state licensure requirements are continually changing, sometimes without notice, there are two public resources that share important information related to license portability.

First, the Education Commission of the States publishes a comparison of state policy on teacher license requirements, which is available here. Updated June 6, 2020, this informational site also links to each state’s specific licensure information for educators coming from outside the state. In addition, each state’s specific information regarding additional assessments required of out-of-state teachers is available here.

The other resource is the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement, which facilitates the mobility of educators among the 47 states, District of Columbia, Department of Defense Education Activity, and Guam, that have signed the Agreement. Wisconsin signed this agreement. Licensure requirements for out-of-state educators are listed by state here, including an interactive map tool by state here.

It is very important that individuals seeking licensure in another state obtain the most recent certification/licensure information directly from the state in which they seek employment. You can find contact information on each state licensure office here.

Administrator, Pupil Service, and Advanced Licensure

Administrator, Pupil Service, and Advanced Licensure:

Administrators, pupil service professionals, and those with advanced licenses in teaching must meet the expectations of the individual states. Sometimes, there are shared requirements defined by professional organizations that make meeting state licensure requirements a bit easier.

Like teacher licenses, expectations for a license may change. It is very important that individuals seeking licensure in another state obtain the most recent certification/licensure information directly from the state in which they seek employment. You can find contact information on each state licensure office here.

Speech Language Pathology, MS

There are two (2) types of licensure for Speech Language Pathology. One is to work in healthcare settings and the other is to work in the public-school setting. These tables represent requirements for initial licensure. If you currently hold a license from another state, you may be eligible for licensure reciprocity.

State Licensure

Full licensure often requires completion of a Clinical Fellowship (CF) after completing the graduate program. During this period, some states offer a provisional and/or temporary license, or may even require it for CF. Meanwhile, other states do not require a clinical fellowship and candidates are advised to apply directly for licensure.

School Library Media Certification requirements vary widely across all 50 states. Our programs lead to school library media certification in Wisconsin, which might be accepted in your state. If you are already a certified teacher, by earning your MLIS degree and completing the requirements for WI certification, you will likely be able to be certified in your state. Many other states will accept our program for licensure once you have taken the Praxis exam. Please see the charts below and check with your state’s licensing organization for any recent changes.

Clinical Psychology, PhD

A new federal law, effective July 1, 2020, mandates that educational programs leading to licensure provide information about whether completion of the educational requirements of their program will satisfy state licensure requirements. The table below lists whether the educational requirements of the UWM Clinical Psychology program (as of the 2019-20 academic year) meets the current educational requirements of each state licensure board. In addition to education requirements for the doctoral degree, however, many jurisdictions require post-doctoral professional experience. These requirements are beyond the curricular requirements described below. Thus, this list ONLY reflects whether the UWM degree requirements satisfy current licensure requirements in each state, and does NOT include postdoctoral requirements for each state.

For more information on licensing requirements, including contact information for every state and territory licensing board, please see the Association of State Boards of Professional Psychology (ASBPP) webpage [link]. All states require the completion of supervised predoctoral practicum hours and a predoctoral internship. These aspects are also required for the doctoral degree in clinical psychology at UWM.

Note that in some jurisdictions, in addition to being licensed as a psychologist, an individual can obtain prescribing privileges. UWM’s Clinical program does NOT fulfill requirements for licensure as prescribing psychologists in those states and jurisdictions that allow for it. Typically, additional coursework in pharmacology is needed in addition to the doctoral degree. Please see the ASBPP website for information about other U.S. territories and Canadian provinces.

Below, an asterisk (*) indicates that earning a doctoral degree from a program accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) satisfies educational requirements for licensure. UWM’s Clinical Psychology doctoral program is currently and has been continuously accredited by APA since 1980.

Helen Bader School of Social Welfare

Social Work, BSW

Licensing across the US for social workers requires a BSW or MSW from a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited Program.  A Social Work degree from UWM meets this requirement; therefore, a social work degree obtained from UWM will meet the initial licensing requirements for all 50 states.  Each state has additional requirements including an exam, and post-graduate professional experience for LCSW licensure.  There is a national exam through the Association of Social Work Boards, but not all states have adopted this.

Please visit the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) website for more information regarding licensing requirements and other social work regulations:
