VU Licensure & Certification Programs

Vincennes University’s professional licensure and certification programs are designed to prepare students for certification or licensure in the state of Indiana. Licensure and certification requirements vary by state and territory and can often change. Students who either reside in another state or territory or wish to obtain licensure or certification in a state or territory other than Indiana may or may not have additional study, education, or training requirements. More information about these programs and their associated licensures and certifications may be found below.


State Authorization

Vincennes University (VU) is physically located in the state of Indiana. State authorization is what allows VU and other institutions to conduct certain educational activities outside of its home state.

Vincennes University has not made a determination of whether the curricula of its online licensure programs (Funeral Service Education, Health Information Technology, and Pharmacy Technology) meet the educational requirements for licensure/certification in any states/territories other than Indiana.  Students who intend to seek employment in one of these areas in a state/territory other than Indiana may or may not be subject to additional study, education, licensure, or training requirements.  Please see your state of residence or intended residence below for more information regarding our academic programs and how they apply to employment requirements for said state:
