Important Note for Prospective Students: If you are considering an academic program
that leads to a professional license in the state where you plan on living and working
after graduating, it is highly recommended that you first seek guidance from the appropriate
licensing agency in that state BEFORE beginning the academic program at Trinidad State
College. It is the student's responsibility to contact the appropriate licensing board
to confirm whether a TSC program will meet the requirements for licensure in that
state. In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education and the National Council
for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), Trinidad State College provides
information pertaining to professional licensure and certification in correlation
with programs offered at TSC that may lead to state licensure.

Not all of TSC’s programs are formally approved for professional licensure. However,
while a program may not be formally approved in states outside of Colorado, it may
still meet all or a portion of the “educational” requirements for licensure in other
states and territories. Therefore, it may be necessary for you to contact the licensing
agency directly to find out if a TSC program will meet educational requirements in
states other than Colorado.
Additionally, while progressing through any of these programs, TSC recommends that
you check licensing agency requirements regularly to monitor whether they have changed
in a manner that impacts your licensure plans.
