State Authorization for Distance Education


Many U.S. states require institutions offering distance education to residents of those states to be approved to enroll students according to each state’s educational authority.  This is not an issue for most states because Dallas International does not have a physical campus in those locations.  However, in the remaining states, Dallas International is not currently authorized to allow residents of those states to enroll in courses offered via distance education (including synchronous learning options).
