HB 1508 Licensing Requirements

Notice to Students Pursuing a Victoria College Program That Prepares Them for an Occupational License:

Under Texas law, if you apply for or enroll in a program that may prepare you for an initial occupational license, and/or if you later decide to change to one of these programs, please be aware that:

  1. An individual who has been convicted of a crime may be ineligible for an occupational license after completing the related educational program;
  2. Each licensing authority that issues occupational licenses to students who complete educational programs must establish guidelines, including the reasons a particular crime is considered to relate to a particular license and any other standards that affect the decisions of the licensing authority;
  3. A licensing authority may issue additional state or local restrictions or guidelines to determine the eligibility of an individual who has been convicted of a crime for an occupational license;
  4. A person may request a criminal history evaluation letter regarding the personal eligibility for a license issued by a licensing authority.

Applicants are encouraged to review all applicable eligibility requirements related to the respective occupational license. Questions related to eligibility requirements should be directed to the applicable licensing authority.
