Professional Licensure Disclosures

In compliance with 34 C.F.R § 668.43(a)(5)(v), San Juan College has researched whether a particular program meets educational requirements for professional licensure outside the State of New Mexico. See the list below of the professional licensure programs offered at San Juan College for specific information.


Licensure boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure for their particular state. Students who are located or intend to locate in any state other than New Mexico need to review the professional licensure disclosures pertaining to their program and consult with the state professional licensing board. The state professional licensing boards make the ultimate decision as to whether or not an individual will be eligible for licensure based on the rules and regulations in place at the time the individual submits their application for licensure. 

San Juan College shall not be held liable if the student is unable to qualify for licensure in any jurisdiction or cannot obtain a practicum/internship location.

Student location is determined when a student applies to San Juan College. Every semester, prior to registration, students are asked to update their contact information.

Alternative Teacher Licensure

San Juan College has determined that our curriculum meets state educational requirements for licensure with a passing score of the New Mexico Praxis Assessment. New Mexico is a signee of the 2020-2025 National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement for Educator Licensure. All states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity are all signees in the agreement. This determines that the minimal essential components of an approved preparation program are accepted between each of the Members, but a Member Jurisdiction may impose additional components to meet its own standards for licensure or certification in their own state.
