While Walsh University can provide initial guidance, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to continually check the state where you intend to seek licensure and to confirm all licensing or certification requirements. Some states will require additional licensure requirements which could include an application, post-graduate examinations, background checks, licensing fees, etc.
