Although some of Mansfield University's programs are designed to prepare students to meet Pennsylvania's licensure/certification requirements, this does not assure their compatibility with out-of-state requirements. Applicants who are applying to Mansfield's programs with the intent to pursue licensure or certification in states other than Pennsylvania must be aware of the professional licensure requirements in those states. Current students who are planning to undertake field experiences outside of Pennsylvania should also be aware the requirements of other states.
