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 MSU's Master of Public Health 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, access the State-by-State Summary, for the most up-to-date approved and restricted states.
