College Professors

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

There are no certification or licensing requirements for college professors, but an educator who is preparing students for an occupation that requires a license, certification, or registration may need to have that credential. In other fields, having such a credential may not be required, but it is highly recommended. For example, a college education teacher might need a teaching license, an engineering professor may need to receive a professional engineer license, and a postsecondary nursing teacher might need a nursing license.
