Attention: New York Residents & Those Planning to Work in New York

The State of New York has specific licensing requirements for behavior analysis, and we want you to know that Florida Tech ABA programs are not in the New York State Inventory of Registered Programs. This means it is very unlikely the ABA Online program would be accepted for New York licensing. Please consult the New York Office of the Professions State Board for Applied Behavior Analysis by visiting their website at or by contacting the board at before finalizing your educational plans.
