State Authorization by Program

What is State Authorization and How do I know my Program is Authorized?

State authorization is the permission the University of Kentucky has to offer programs to students in U.S. states and territories. The University of Kentucky participates in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) via the Kentucky Council for Postsecondary Education. As a participant of NC-SARA, the University of Kentucky shares a distance learning reciprocity with 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In addition, the University of Kentucky is also able to offer programs in California. You may complete most distance learning programs at the University of Kentucky from those locations.

Programs in licensed fields may not be available in every state due to state board regulations. Please check your program below to make sure it is available in your state. For each state or territory, a program is in one of three categories:

 

Authorized: The program meets or exceeds the state or territory standards and is authorized to offer distance education through approval or exception by the regulatory agency.

Conditional Authorization: The University of Kentucky may be able to offer the program in the state or territory IF certain conditions or requirements are met. Students should contact UK Distance Learning for more information about the conditional authorization status in this state.

No Authorization: The University of Kentucky is not authorized to offer the distance learning program in the state, or there are strict limitations to authorization. Please contact UK Distance Learning for more information about the no authorization status in this state or territory.

 

Does my Program meet the Licensure Requirements of my State?

If you are considering an academic program that may lead to professional licensure or certification, you are strongly encouraged to visit the Licensure Disclosures by State page, and/or contact the appropriate licensing agency in your state or territory to seek additional information and guidance before beginning the program. Please note that while a program is authorized in your state, it may not meet the licensure requirements of your state.

 

U.S. Territories 

The University of Kentucky is not currently authorized to provide distance education courses or programs to students in American Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Republic of Palau. Students from any of these territories who are interested in applying to a distance education program are encouraged to contact UK Distance Learning so our office can research the requirements for state authorization. The University of Kentucky is authorized to provide distance education in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands under the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement.
