Some programs at Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas lead to a license and/or certification. The U.S. Department of Education regulations now require disclosures for all programs leading to a license or certification. Disclosures will be provided for all states and will indicate whether the program meets licensure requirements, does not meet licensure requirements or has not yet been determined for each state.
Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas ensures state licensure or certification information is current; however, state requirements may change. If you are planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in another state, it is strongly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to seek information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements before beginning an academic program.
At this time, no programs requiring professional licensure are offered online. For more information about the College’s programs, please visit our Academic Programs page.

Once an individual is licensed in Arkansas, many states will grant them a compact license.
