Accreditation

Is ASU Online accredited?

Yes, Arizona State University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to offer all of our online academic programs to all regional locations via distance education. Please visit the University Program Review and Accreditation Office for more information on academic accreditation at ASU.

State authorization

Universities are required to meet state regulations around the country in order to offer classes and degrees to students in various states. As an institutional participant in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), and as an HLC-accredited public, nonprofit institution, ASU has met the state authorizations for all states, districts and territories.

While ASU is currently authorized or exempt from seeking state authorizations around the country, this process is dynamic and subject to change. This website will be periodically updated with information about the authorization status for ASU Online in each state. Students should check the State Authorization and Professional Licensure material before registering for classes each session for the most up-to-date information.

Licensure

There are certain careers or fields that require a professional license to practice, and licensure requirements vary by state. ASU’s professional licensure programs are designed to prepare students for a license in the State of Arizona. Students who wish to practice in a state other than Arizona should check the professional licensure page each session for the most up-to-date information.
