The licensure office has developed guidelines to assist institutions in completing and submitting the licensure petition and new academic degree programs. It is recommended that prior to submitting a licensure petition, institutions review the guidelines and prompts below.
Before beginning preparation of a petition, please review the included licensure rules in New Jersey Administrative Code (N.J.A.C.) Title 9A – Higher Education. A petition for licensure should be as factual and data-based as possible, providing concisely and explicitly all of the information and evidence necessary to demonstrate that the institution, proposed college credit bearing courses and/or academic degree program(s) meet the licensure standards stipulated in New Jersey Administrative Code 9A – Higher Education.
