Pre-Admission Disclosure Language for Licensure and Credentialing Programs

For example, licensure or credentialing requirements can include evidence of the right to work in the United States (e.g., social security number or tax payer identification number) or successfully passing a criminal background check.
Students are responsible for determining whether they can meet licensure or credentialing requirements.
The CSU will not refund tuition, fees, or any associated costs, to students who determine subsequent to admission that they cannot meet licensure or credentialing requirements.
