State Authorization – Education Outside the State of Tennessee

In October 2010 the U.S. Department of Education adopted regulations indicating that states were responsible for all education offered to residents within their state boundaries, regardless of where this education originated. The 2010 federal regulations, referred to commonly as "State Regulatory Authorization," applies to all types of postsecondary education for which students qualified for federal student assistance, regardless of the sector or level of higher education. Additionally, federal law now requires each institution offering education in other states to demonstrate that it has approval to serve students in these other states. These regulations encompass educational and clinical experiences for UTHSC students served in other states via distance education, practical experiences, or face-to-face instruction. Therefore, UTHSC is expected to obtain approval before enrolling students, advertising, marketing, or performing other regulated activities in other states.
Please see the UT System summary of states that have physical presence triggers that will affect our ability to offer online programs (and some field experiences with any programs, regardless of the mode of delivery). Please see the State Authorization page for a list of authorized states.
