Augsburg University Professional Licensure Disclosures

The degree programs at Augsburg University that are intended to result in professional licensure and certification are designed to meet the educational requirements for the state of Minnesota.

Per the U.S. Department of Education regulation 34 CFR 668.43 (a) (5) (v) we are obligated to disclose whether or not Augsburg’s programs will meet the educational requirements for professional licensure or certification in any of the U.S. states or territories. To the best of our knowledge, the following information accurately reflects the requirements applicable for each of our licensing programs.

We encourage students who may live out-of-state or intend to test or apply for licensure or certification outside of Minnesota to: (1) share this with college representatives and program officials, and (2) review the state educational requirements on the relevant licensing body’s website. Augsburg University will work collaboratively to ensure that all students stay apprised and informed regarding educational requirements for licensing eligibility wherever they may live.

Graduate Degrees

Clinical Psychology

The Clinical Psychology PsyD Program at Augsburg University is completing a teachout program for former Argosy University students only. This teachout program is APA-accredited, inactive, and as an APA-accredited program, this program meets educational requirements for psychologist licensure in Minnesota as established by the Minnesota Board of Psychology. Eligibility for psychologist licensure in MN requires completion of a doctoral degree, passage of the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), one year of supervised practice, and passage of the Minnesota Professional Responsibility Exam. At this time, Augsburg is unable to determine whether the PsyD teachout program meets educational requirements for psychology licensure in any jurisdiction outside of Minnesota.

At this time, for new students or any student not enrolled in the Argosy teachout program, Augsburg is unable to determine whether its PsyD program meets educational requirements in psychology licensure in Minnesota or any in other jurisdiction outside of Minnesota.
