Florida Atlantic University(FAU) State Authorization Status

 

State Authorization of Distance Education is a requirement in all U.S. States. Many of these state laws and regulations also apply to online, distance and correspondence educational instruction offered in that state. To be legally authorized to provide post-secondary educational instruction in a state, post-secondary educational institutions must receive such authorization. Florida Atlantic University and its online/distance educations programs must be authorized in certain states prior to offering those courses or programs to students residing in those states. 

Florida Atlantic University's goals are to deliver all of its online programs in every state. However, the complexity of requirements in some states, including differing requirements by academic programs, makes this impractical.
