The Post University MSHSV program affords students the opportunity to take additional coursework toward licensure eligibility, but it is not a licensure program. As licensure is a professional process, it is up to each student to fully understand the licensure process as it varies from state to state and area of specialization. The faculty and staff in the MSHSV program are here to support and advise students on program requirements, but it is ultimately the responsibility of individual students to be in charge of his/her own licensure process and to make sure that all requirements are met in obtaining licensure. Post University does not speak on behalf of any licensing board or body.
