California

Effective: December 11, 2019

Transcript Review Required

Based upon a review of the state’s regulations on 12/11/2019, an individual applicant’s transcripts are reviewed by the state to determine if the educational requirements for licensure have been met. In addition to educational attainment, the professional licensing agency may consider the applicant’s professional experience, level of educational attainment, background, criminal record, exam scores, etc., to determine if the individual applying for licensure meets the state requirements. Therefore, only the state can determine if the individual graduate meets the requirements for licensure. As a result, GCU cannot make that determination for the state. Individuals with specific questions about this state’s process or regulations are advised to contact the state board to determine if the program will meet the individual’s needs.
