State Authorizations for Online/Distance Education

The United States Department of Education regulation 4 C.F.R.§ 600.9 © requires each state to apply for and receive authorization to provide online/distance education programs to out-of-state students. 

The Department of Education requires all post-secondary educational institutions to be legally authorized to provide post-secondary educational instruction in their states. 

Sierra College Out-of-State Policy for Online Courses

In order to maintain compliance, students living outside of California or Nevada, based on their mailing address AND physical presence, are prohibited from taking online classes at Sierra College.

Incorrect Mailing Address Issue 

If the mailing address is incorrect, or if a student has recently moved to the state of California, they can log in to the student portal and update their mailing address. Once the address has been updated to a California address, the students will be able to enroll in online classes at Sierra College.
