Transcript Review Required

Based upon a review of the state’s regulations on 01/17/2020, an individual applicant’s transcripts are reviewed by the licensure agency in District of Columbia to determine if the educational requirements for licensure have been met.

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.
