UMBC offers the following programs that meet the degree requirements for professional licensure in Maryland. In some cases, there exists reciprocity agreements between Maryland and other states. Reciprocity agreements allow individuals who hold a professional license in one state to earn a license in another state, subject to meeting state-specific requirements. Reciprocity agreements allow states to work through variations in licensing systems to coordinate license transfers and fill vacant positions with qualified candidates. Most states have policies in place to extend reciprocity for certain licenses, but few states provide full reciprocity for all fully licensed professionals from other states.
