The U.S. Department of Education requires all institutions offering distance education to be authorized in the states in which it operates. As stated in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR):
If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be legally offering postsecondary distance or correspondence education in that State. An institution must be able to document to the Secretary the State's approval upon request. (34 CFR§ 600.9[c])
This means that Online and Independent Learning must acquire approval from any state where students reside and take University of Nevada, Reno online courses. This is an ongoing and lengthy process, and we are working diligently to acquire those authorizations.
Because authorization has not been received in all states, students should contact Online and Independent Learning before applying to any online degree program. Our office can be reached in the following ways:
