State Authorization

State Authorization is a term that refers to an essential process that institutions of higher education conduct to obtain state and federal approval to offer instruction or educational activities in other states. Educational activities include online programs or courses, teaching, internships, or field trips. It is important to note that not all institutions of higher learning are officially able to offer “educational activities” in all states.

Ӱ̳ is in the process of seeking authorization in various states and has already obtained a few approvals.

Professional Licensure

Professional Licensure or “Licensure” means a state or other governmental entity process establishing standards of practice. It gives legal permission to practice a profession by providing licenses to individuals who meet those standards (SARA Manual • Version 20.1. January 1, 2020, Distributed February 6, 2020). 

To be licensed in a given field can vary from State to State. Ӱ̳ professional licensure programs are designed to prepare students for a license in the State of California.
