The table provides information to identify whether this program meets the specific state, province, or territory educational requirements for the states and provinces listed below. In the column titled “Does This Program Meet State Educational Requirements?” the disclosure for that state is provided as “Meets State Educational Requirements”, “Does Not Meet State Educational Requirements”, or “No Determination Has Been Made”. This disclosure is unique to the specific state for each row on the table.

It’s important to note that even if the program meets the educational requirements, licensure may also require acceptance to a registry, background checks, or meeting physical standard requirements. Students are advised to check with the agency to identify an exact set of requirements that extend above the educational requirements.

Twenty States (plus Washington DC) have formal testing and training programs for Notary Public. A notary public´┐Żs jurisdiction extends throughout the state in which training occurred, but it does not extend beyond its borders
