State Authorization of Distance Education Outside of California
The US Department of Education requires that any institution offering distance education programs to students who reside outside of its home state must acquire authorization from the states in which students reside. Regulations vary from state to state, as such, federal, state, and institutional policies may limit or prohibit CBD College’s authorization for delivery of online education to students in certain states.
While the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity (NC-SARA), established a voluntary state-level reciprocity process for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education programs, the state of California does not participate in the agreement and California-based institutions such as CBD College are not eligible to take advantage of the reciprocity agreement if they offer distance education in other states. Therefore, CBD College must seek and document a status with the states in which the institution enrolls distance education students.
CBD College does not enroll students from states where the institution is not licensed or authorized, exempt, operating under a waiver, or otherwise able to enroll students because the state’s laws do not pertain to the institution or to the College’s activities in that state.
Impact of Change in Location of Residence
Students must contact the school to discuss any change in their state of residence prior to relocation. Should a student relocate to a state in which CBD College is not authorized to provide distance education, continued enrollment cannot be guaranteed. This may also impact a student’s Title IV financial aid eligibility, loan repayment or deferment and/or veteran’s benefits. Students should consult with the Financial Aid Office to determine the impact of a change in location.
The list below summarizes CBD College’s status in those states in which the institution currently offers distance education programs to that state’s residents and the complaint process for those states.
