Per state laws, distance education courses and programs must be legally authorized in a state prior to offering courses or programs to students residing there. In addition, programs in fields regulated by licensure or certification may not meet the educational requirements for licensure in certain states. Therefore, program availability varies by state. Students should check online to determine if a distance education program at the University of Kentucky is available in their state of residence or meets the educational requirements for licensure in their state.
Important note for relocating during the course of a program: All distance education students should keep in mind that relocating during the course of a program to another state could impact whether that student can continue in the course and/or meet the eligibility requirements of that state.Please note that not all programs are authorized in all states.
