Find out about professional licensure before beginning an academic program at Notre Dame of Maryland University.

Disclosure Disclaimer: This information is developed to inform students and other stakeholders about the NDMU programs that lead to professional licensure or certification. Programs omitted from this list are not intended to lead to a professional licensure or certification. Since the Professional Licensure and certification requirements vary from state to state, disclosures posted here can be used to confirm if programs offered by NDMU meet the educational prerequisites for professional licensure or certification within and outside the state of Maryland.

NDMU will review and update the licensure information semi-annually. Students who plan to pursue licensure for any programs should be aware that state licensure requirements are subject to changes. Students should always check with their state licensure board to confirm licensure requirements

Requirements for Professional Licensure

Requirements for professional licensure in fields such as education, nursing, and pharmacy vary from state to state. Notre Dame of Maryland University academic programs are designed to meet Maryland's licensure requirements and may not meet requirements from other states.

Before beginning any academic program that leads to licensure or certification, NDMU highly recommends that you contact the appropriate state licensing board where you wish to seek licensure or certification to determine whether the program you are considering will meet that state's licensing or certification requirements. At this time, NDMU has not determined, except as specifically identified below, whether our academic programs meet the licensure or certification requirements for all US states, territories, or the District of Columbia.

Completion of a NDMU degree program does not guarantee employment in any profession. Prior to enrollment, students are responsible for confirming all education, testing, and licensing requirements in their chosen field.

Criminal Background Information

Some states' laws require a criminal background check and may disqualify an individual from obtaining licensure if the individual has been convicted of certain crimes. If you have a criminal background, please check with the appropriate state licensing board where you wish to work for more information.

NDMU Programs

Actuarial Science (Post-Baccalaureate Certificate)

The actual steps needed to become an actuary are country-specific. To join the profession in the United States, prospective actuaries must pass a series of exams given by the Society of Actuaries (SOA), the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), or the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries (ASPPA). The exam process usually takes several years. All of these credentials are given at the Federal (national) level, with actuarial professional societies administering the exams and validation by educational experience.

This NDMU PBC in Actuarial Science program prepares students for the associate actuarial certification examinations of Society of Actuaries and Casualty Actuarial Society, and thereby does meet the academic requirements for certification in all 50 states.

This structured program comprises a number of credit-bearing University courses, but is not a Terminal Degree. The program is ideal for those who want to have a professional knowledge of the actuarial industry. With the PBC, students will gain actuarial knowledge spanning topics including investment and asset liability management, property and casualty insurance, pensions, and life insurance.

Dual-Degree Law

NDMU Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Baltimore School of Law allows students to save time and tuition by finishing their degrees on an accelerated track. Instead of taking the usual seven years to earn their undergraduate and law degrees, they can complete the dual-degree program in just six years. Students are awarded their bachelor’s degrees at the end of their fourth year and are eligible to participate in the School of Arts, Sciences and Business graduation ceremonies at that time.

The Juris Doctor is typically awarded after two additional years as a full-time law student on successful completion of the required course credits in the Law School and of all other JD requirements. The University of Baltimore School of Law is approved by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association (ABA).

School of Education Programs

Teacher license reciprocity allows educators who hold a teaching license in one state to earn a license in another state, subject to meeting state-specific requirements. Most states have policies in place to extend reciprocity for certain teachers, and a few states provide full reciprocity for all fully licensed teachers from other states.

It is the student’s responsibility to check the state teaching licensure requirements for the state they wish to seek employment. Notre Dame of Maryland University has not determined each state, territory or the District of Columbia’s licensure reciprocity or alignment with its Maryland curriculum.

Below, we provide students links to each state’s teacher licensure profile and directory. Please use these resources to see a 50-state comparison of teacher licensure reciprocity and links to additional information.

For additional information, visit the Education Commission of the States.

School of Pharmacy - Pharm.D. Program

Licensure Requirements Laws in all states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, require applicants for licensure to:

  1. be of good moral character;
  2. be 21 years of age;
  3. have graduated from an ACPE-accredited first professional degree program of a University or school of pharmacy; and
  4. have passed an examination given by the board of pharmacy.

All states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands use the North American Pharmacy Licensure Examination (NAPLEX). All jurisdictions require candidates for licensure to have a record of practical experience or internship training acquired under the supervision and instruction of a licensed practitioner. Some states, including Maryland, accept the training completed during a formal academic program.

Publications concerning the NAPLEX licensure examination and internship experience are available from NABP. For further information regarding licensure, please contact the Maryland Board of Pharmacy.
