Persons Convicted of Rioting Offenses

Under Colorado law, no person shall be enrolled in a state supported institution of higher education for a period of twelve months following the date of a guilty verdict, guilty plea, no contest plea, or a deferred judgment and sentence for inciting riot, arming rioters, or engaging in a riot.

Professional Licensure

In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education for participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), Front Range Community College (FRCC) provides information pertaining to professional licensure and certification in correlation with programs offered at FRCC that may lead to state licensure. 

Students are advised to review the following information BEFORE beginning a program at FRCC that leads to professional licensure with the intent to be licensed outside of the state of Colorado. Review the licensing information provided for the applicable program(s) below. While FRCC endeavors to ensure this information is up to date, changes in licensure requirements of any state can change at any time. Contact the appropriate licensing agency in the U.S. states and territories where licensure is intended. This will enable you to obtain the most up-to-date information about licensure requirements and confirm FRCC’s program meets those requirements.

Only a select few of FRCC’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. Additionally, while progressing through any of these programs, FRCC recommends you check this licensing page regularly to monitor whether they have changed in a manner that impacts your licensure plans.

Students interested in professional licensure programs should contact the applicable licensing board to determine any additional requirements, beyond the degree program that may need to be fulfilled to obtain licensure in a particular state. Some licensing boards may require additional post-graduation examinations, acquire additional experience, pay application and/or licensing fees, undergo criminal background checks, submit fingerprints, or provide other information prior to obtaining licensure.

To learn more, please review the licensure information provided for the program of interest: 

For additional assistance pertaining to professional licensing compliance, please contact Rebecca Woulfe, Ph.D., Vice President for Academic Affairs and Online Learning.
