State licensure and credentialing agencies maintain independent criteria and standards over which Mount Saint Mary's University has no control.  Arrests or convictions (including expunged convictions) of a misdemeanor or felony may result in a student's inability to be licensed or credentialed.  Additionally, undocumented immigrants may be denied a license in the student's chosen field.  Therefore, it is highly recommended that individuals with potential legal or immigration status issues check with their licensing/credentialing agencies prior to entering a graduate program of study to determine eligibility for licensure.
