The Associate of Science degree in Cancer Registry Management (CRM) is designed to lead professional licensure as outlined by individual state boards of Cancer Registry Management. Before enrolling in the Associate of Science in CRM, students are encouraged to consult the rules and regulations regarding licensure and/or certification in their particular state, and nationally as required by the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA). Graduation in this program does not guarantee licensure/certification in all states or jurisdictions. Students are responsible for meeting all academic and professional requirements for graduation. Further, it is the sole responsibility of the student, not the program, to obtain information regarding any prerequisites for licensure as outlined by either their particular state or by the NCRA.
A determination has been made that both the Associate of Science in Cancer Registry Management and the Certificate in Cancer Registry Management fulfills the educational requirements for the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA) certification in all fifty states, including the District of Columbia.
If at any time, a determination is made that the curriculum does not meet the licensure requirements in a State, the institution will provide notice to that effect to the student prior to the student’s enrollment in the program. If the student is already enrolled in a program and a determination is made that the curriculum does not meet the licensure requirements in a State, the institution must provide notice to that effect to the student within 14 calendar days of making such determination.
Students should make note of the following:
- State and/or national regulations regarding licensure opportunities if an application has a previous felony conviction.
- State and/or national regulations regarding the type and number of academic courses and practicum/internship hours.
- The state and/or national requirements for educational institutions.
