Status of State Authorizations

State-by-State status of Authorization to offer Online Courses to Students who Live in States Other than California...

SBVC is working in cooperation with the Department of Education and states' agencies to comply with required authorizations so that we can continue to provide educational access to students across the country. We are evaluating and working to comply with these various requirements and will provide up-to-date information when available.  This is a lengthy and arduous task, but this web page will attempt to provide SBVC students and potential students the most up-to-date information regarding state authorization.  And for the purposes of this website, the terms “authorize” and “authorization” are used generically to include approve, certify, license, regulate, recognize, empower, or similar actions relative to the operation, provision, or availability of postsecondary education in the various states.
