Licensure Status

All students in the program are required to maintain a current license with the ARRT or NMTCB in good standing throughout their course of studies.  Any changes in licensure status must be documented by submitting a copy of your current license.  The Program reserves the right to request updated evidence of licensure status at any time.  If at any time you become unlicensed for any reason, or if you are obligated to surrender licensure in any jurisdiction for disciplinary reasons, you must inform us of your change of status.  This notification must occur immediately if you are currently participating in a course, or at the time of registration for your next course.  Please be aware that we are obligated to report any attempts at misrepresenting your licensure status to appropriate regulatory agencies.
