What is State Authorization?
State laws and regulations require out-of-state educational institutions to obtain approval before enrolling students. Requirements to obtain authorization vary greatly from state to state, as do the application processes and the cost to comply. State Authorization is simply the term used to cover all aspects of an institution’s process for obtaining approval to operate in an out-of-state location through either online education, practicums, clinicals, or face-to-face instruction.
What does it mean for students?
State regulations, authorization requirements, costs, and application processes vary greatly. Therefore, there course that WCC offers online that are not available in every state or location. Students should check the authorization status of their state of residence and program choice prior to applying to Westchester Community College.
