International Distance Education: Degree Recognition

International students considering an academic program that leads to a professional license or certification should first confirm with the appropriate professional licensing authority in their country of residence and/or the country in which they intend to work whether the degree program would be recognized when seeking licensure or certification.   It is the student's responsibility to understand current circumstances or special requirements of whether the online degree will be recognized in the country of residence; how the collection of student data may be used in your country; and, whether you will be subject to additional withholding taxes in addition to the price of tuition.  The University will follow U.S. privacy laws about data protection unless otherwise noted.
