State Authorization Information

The College of Central Florida is a member of the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), through membership in FL-SARA. We are able to offer distance education to students in the territories of Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and every state and the District of Columbia, except California. 

The college has not designed any online degree program or certificate for the purpose of leading to professional license in any state other than Florida. We are in the process of determining licensure status for our various degrees and programs but have not yet made any determinations. 

If you are seeking a professional license in another state, please contact us and we will help you make that determination. You may reach us at DLHelp@cf.edu. If you apply to complete a program that might be assumed to lead to licensure, from outside of FL, please make sure that we have your correct email address on file, as we may be required to contact you to disclose the status of our program in your state.
