State-Specific Academic Requirements for Licensure
Licensing requirements depend on where you wish to live and practice as a funeral director. It is best to contact the regulatory board in the state where you wish to pursue licensure for specific information about their licensing requirements before applying to a funeral service program. This is the best way to ensure that your academic program will satisfy the licensing requirements of the state in which you desire to practice as a funeral director.
Academic Requirements for Licensure in Funeral Service
In accordance with the Federal Higher Education Act, academic programs must disclose to prospective and enrolled students whether or not the academic program will satisfy the licensing requirements of the student's state.
Please be advised that the State of Nebraska requires coursework for licensure that is not required of the Bachelor's of Science degree program at the University of Minnesota. With proper planning, however, students can complete Nebraska's coursework licensing requirements as part of their 120-credit degree program while enrolled at the University of Minnesota. These requirements are noted here under "67-003.03 General Education."
Please contact our office with any questions you may have about degree program planning related to licensing requirements in the state(s) in which you wish to practice. Additional information about state licensure requirements can be found here.
