California State University programs for professions that require licensure or  certification are intended to prepare the student to meet California licensure and  certification requirements. Admission into programs for professions that require  licensure and certification does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or  certificate. Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not  controlled by or affiliated with the California State University and licensure and  certification requirements can change at any time. 

The California State University has not determined whether its programs meet other  states’ educational or professional requirements for licensure and certification.  Students enrolled in a California State University program who are planning to pursue  licensure or certification in other states are responsible for determining whether they  will meet their state’s requirements for licensure or certification. This disclosure is  made pursuant to 34 CFR §668.43(a)(5)(v)(C).
