Professional Licensure Disclosures

New York State prides itself in the high quality of its licensed and certified professionals. For the protection of its citizens, each license and certificate have requirements that individuals must meet in order to be licensed or certified in New York State. SUNY's academic programs leading to licensure or certification are carefully designed to meet and exceed these State requirements. This is a role SUNY plays in protecting the public. Other states frequently have their own requirements, so if your goal is to practice in another state, this disclosure will help you check to see what that state requires.

Furthermore, this disclosure does not account for changes in state law or regulation that may affect your application for licensure and occur after this disclosure has been made.

Statement regarding out of state licensure for Massage Therapy:

New York State Licensure does not transfer to other states. However, our education transfers to all 50 states. New York holds the highest requirements for licensure and therefore, each state accepts New York’s education (1000 contact hours) as completion of requirements for certification and/or licensure in Massage Therapy. There is a nationally recognized exam for Massage Therapy, the MBLEX, which is currently accepted in 38 states. This exam is not accepted in NY, as the education requirements for the MBLEX do not uphold the same standards as the NYS Licensure exam. Additionally, some states, such as Vermont, hold no certification requirements.

  1. The terms related to licensure and certification, among others, vary by state and your state may use different terms.
  2. This determination is based on the educational and curricular requirements of each state for licensure (i.e., excluding any special, temporary licensure that may be granted) and does not imply that other requirements for licensure do not exist or have been determined to have been met by this program or that any necessary approvals for clinical placements have been secured at the time of enrollment. A license in the state of intended practice is a requirement of entry and continuation in the program. Each student should verify their particular situation with their intended state's licensing entity.
  3. If the State does not regulate/license advanced practice nursing, the SUNY Morrisville program has been determined to be sufficient for these purposes.
