Professional Licensure Information

Kellogg Community College (KCC) programs leading to licensure and/or advanced practice certification/endorsement, whether delivered online or face-to-face, satisfy the academic requirements for those credentials set forth by the State of Michigan.

Requirements for licensure and/or advanced practice certification/endorsement eligibility vary from one profession to another and from state to state. For students who wish to practice in a state other than Michigan, please contact the program Director or Chair to discuss if you will need to satisfy additional requirements to practice in that state.
