Professional Licensure Disclosures

Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) offers multiple programs designed to lead to licensure or certification, many of which meet educational requirements in the state of Tennessee. Students should be aware that licensure requirements vary from state to state and are subject to change. Licensing agencies or boards also may have requirements in addition to an earned degree. MTSU has not made a determination whether these programs will meet all of the certification requirements of a US state or territory.  MTSU recommends that students who are not Tennessee residents or who plan to seek licensure or certification outside the state of Tennessee contact the appropriate licensing agency or board before they enroll in an academic program designed to lead to licensure or certification and discuss their plans with an advisor.

    Those who complete an MTSU EMT Training program and gain licensure in Tennessee are eligible for certification reciprocity in many states. Reciprocity is not an automatic or complete transfer of certification, thus individuals should consult the Emergency Medical Services site at https://www.tn.gov/health/health-program-areas/health-professional-boards/ems-board/ems-board/licensure.html#reciprocity and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians site at https://www.nremt.org/rwd/public/document/replica for information about reciprocity and the Recognition of EMS Personnel Licensure Interstate Compact.
