State Authorization for Distance Learning

The University of New Haven currently enrolls students from every state and U.S. territory.  Federal and state regulations require that all institutions of higher education comply with existing state laws regarding distance learning.  As these regulations are continuously evolving, University of New Haven makes every effort to maintain compliance.  As a condition of University of New Haven’s authority to offer its programs to state residents, several postsecondary education agencies require the publication of certain consumer information.



The University of New Haven is exempt from authorization under AS 14.48 because the program is online or distance delivered and does not have a physical presence in the state.
