Degree/Diploma Options

​​The DMACC Mortuary Science Program has two options for students:​

The degree/diploma options both satisfy the American Board of Funeral Service Education accreditation requirements for taking the National Board Examination by the International Conference of Funeral Service Examining Boards.  The difference is which option is best for the state in which you desire to become a licensed funeral director.

Specific State Laws and Rules

Each student / preceptor is responsible for making sure they are complying with the state laws in the state in which they are completing the activities.

To assist students in knowing the laws, we created a survey and sent it to every State Board office in the country in April 2015 and then again in July 2015 to those Boards who had not responded during the April 2015 survey.

Here you will find a link to the survey by those State Boards which chose to respond.​

In addition, the information regarding whether DMACC is authorized in each state is maintained by the DMACC Distance Learning Program
