Licensure & State Approvals

Each Ross Medical Education Center campus and each Ross College campus is licensed or authorized by the applicable state in which the school is located or nearby state in which students are served.

Some states regulate the duties of some professions such as Pharmacy Technicians and Dental Assistants. Students and individuals interested in these professions should check with the state in which they plan to work for requirements for licensure or registration. Dental Assistants may need licensure/registration to take radiographs. Licensure/registration of some professions may require passing a written or practical examination.

Some states also define some dental assisting functions as “expanded functions” and require successful completion of the state administered RDA examination. The Dental Assistant program offered by Ross College and Ross Medical Education Center does not currently address those expanded functions; therefore graduates are not eligible to take the state administered RDA examination to become Registered Dental Assistants.
