Internships and State Authorization

Changing legislation regarding what constitutes "physical presence" of a Virginia university in other states has resulted in varying rules on student internships, clinical placements, practica, and student teaching in off-site locations. There are some states in which Longwood is not allowed to place students because we lack state authorization.

For more information about SARA, see nc-sara.org.

For questions about internships and state authorization, contact Virginia Kinman, Assistant Vice President for Accreditation and Compliance, at oac@longwood.edu.

Programs Leading to Professional Licensure

Longwood University degree programs that potentially lead to professional licensure are designed to prepare students to meet the requirements for professional licensure in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Any prospective or current student wishing to pursue professional licensure in a state other than Virginia should contact the Office of Accreditation and Compliance in writing at oac@longwood.edu. to receive current contact information for the other state’s applicable licensing board and work with the faculty advisor or program coordinator to determine whether the other state’s requirements can be met through the Longwood degree program.
