Program Licensures

Learn Lead keyboard graphic.Great Basin College (GBC) is required to provide accurate information to out-of-state students relating to its programs that lead to professional licensure. This is meant to help out-of-state students make the best academic decision that will best serve them in the states where they are located.

Great Basin College will use the most recent information provided by its students to determine their current location in its efforts to communicate as accurately as possible, information relating to each licensed profession. Students are responsible for providing Great Basin College with their current addresses, and updates as their addresses change.

All of the programs that GBC offers meet licensure requirements in the state of Nevada. Other states may have different licensure requirements. Great Basin College strives to provide the most accurate information possible, but may not be able to determine the status of its programs in every state.

The following is a list of programs GBC offers which potentially lead to licensed professions.
