The U.S. Department of Education’s regulation 34 CFR 600.9(c), State Authorization, requires that a higher education institution offering distance education in a state where it is not physically located meet individual state requirements for offering distance or correspondence education within that state and requires that institutions provide certain disclosures relating to state distance authorization status, consumer complaint information, refund policies, and program licensure requirements, among others.

Consequences of Moving States: Students are advised that Walden maintains a state authorization status in every state and relocation to another state will not impact a student’s continued ability to remain enrolled in a program. However, for students enrolled in licensure-leading programs, relocation to another state may impact the student’s ability to obtain professional licensure, certification or other credential in another state. Students are advised to carefully review, evaluate and understand the requirements of the applicable licensure board in the state in which they intend to relocate.
