State Authorization

Many states and territories have an authorization process for out-of-state institutions delivering online programs to their residents.  These authorization processes ensure quality post-secondary education, preserve the integrity of an academic degree, and provide consumer protection under state and territory law.

We have a staff dedicated to understanding State Authorization and providing information to faculty, staff, and prospective students about it. Under state authorization law, the University of Georgia is compliant in the states listed on the state authorization information page.

E-mail us or call 1(844) 848-3294 with any questions you have regarding state authorization. To learn more about state authorization for distance education, you can visit the Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET) website.
