State Authorization Status

State Authorization of Distance Education is a complex and dynamic environment. Prospective students should check this site often for updates.

Florida State University's Office of Distance Learning seeks to deliver all of our fully online programs in every state. However, the complexity and fluidity of requirements in some states, including differing requirements by academic program, make this impractical.

From the list below, please select on the state in which you currently reside and review its current status, including any special requirements which may exist for your academic program of interest. If Florida State University cannot currently provide distance education in your state, or if your program of interest is excluded, please check back as the information changes often.

Important Note for Prospective Students: If you are considering an academic program that leads to a professional license in your state, it is highly recommended that you first seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency in your home state BEFORE beginning the academic program located outside your state.
