  • State Authorization and Licensure

    Many states require post-secondary educational institutions to be legally authorized to offer field experience activities such as internships, clinical or fieldwork experiences in their state. Saint Francis University is in a continuous process to monitor regulations in states and territories in which it "operates." Students presently enrolled that wish to complete a field experience activity such as an internship, clinical or fieldwork experience should consult the program coordinator before initializing any contact with an out-of-state business or agency. Students should consult our State Authorization and Licensure page for further information or to determine SFU's authorization status in a particular state.
