State Authorization: Distance Education Restrictions Based on Permanent Residence

Michigan State University is obligated to comply with existing state laws regarding distance education (programs/departments offering courses delivered exclusively online). State laws regarding distance education vary state-by-state, and even program-by-program within a state. The Master of Public Health offered through the College of Human Medicine’s Division of Public Health at Michigan State University requires a practicum experience that constitutes a physical presence in some states, therefore restricting enrollment in our program to residents of those states.

Prior to applying, please visit, https://esp.msu.edu/StateSummary.pdf, for the most up-to-date approved and restricted states.  For more information, please visit MSU's State Authorization website, https://reg.msu.edu/ROInfo/StateAuthInfo.aspx.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
