Professional Licensure in Other States

UWGB recognizes that our Phoenix family soars from coast to coast. Whether you complete your degree from a distance or move out of state after you graduate, a UWGB degree may meet professional licensure requirements. The State Licensure Guidance (hyperlink to page – see information below) provides information on our programs and their alignment to state-specific licensure requirements.
Pre-Professional Studies

UWGB offers a variety of academic programs. Many of our emphases are gateways to graduate and advanced degrees required of specific professions. Students can focus their studies to prepare for continued studies in Dietetics, Engineering, Health Sciences, Law, Military Science, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine. We would encourage students interested in these programs to work with their academic advisors throughout their studies at UWGB.
