Out-of-State Regulations

Out-of-State Students Interested in College of Graduate Nursing Online Programs

The implementation of current Department of Education regulations have an impact on applicants from out-of-state.

We strive to attain authorization to offer our distance programs to students in every state. However, state laws are dynamic and the monitoring of the specific regulations is continually in flux. Prospective out-of-state students should check this often and should contact the College of Graduate Nursing for clarification.
