CONSUMER INFORMATION REGARDING GRAND VIEW UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS THAT PREPARE STUDENTS FOR PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE
Pursuant to 34 C.F.R. § 600.9, Grand View University is required to disclose consumer information regarding our curricular programs that “foreseeably lead” to careers requiring state licensure. This regulation requires us to determine whether or not our licensure-related programs satisfy the educational requirements for professional licensure in the states where our prospective students are located.
Accordingly, we are required to disclose for each program that leads to licensure whether:
1. The program meets the educational requirements for professional licensure in a specific state;
2. The program does not meet the educational requirements for professional licensure in a specific state; or
3. We have not determined whether our program meets a particular state’s educational requirements.
Because licensing requirements differ dramatically by occupational category as well as by state, we encourage prospective students to check their state legislative codes to verify the information presented here. We will strive to update this information on an annual basis by July 1 of each year.
Grand View’s B.A. in Accounting program does not meet the educational requirements for licensure in any state. Students must obtain 150 total credit hours to qualify to sit for the CPA exam and the bachelor degree provides only 124 credit hours, requiring applicants for the exam to earn additional credit hours.
To become an Athletic Trainer, candidates must graduate with a degree in Athletic Training from an accredited Athletic Training program and successfully pass the Board of Certification (BOC) exam. Degrees in physical therapy, exercise science, strength and conditioning or others DO NOT qualify the candidate to sit for the BOC examination.
Grand View’s MSAT program meets the educational requirements to sit for the BOC exam in all states except California as the state of California does not have state regulation for athletic trainers.
