Is ASU Online accredited?
Arizona State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to offer all of our online degree programs through ASU Online. Accreditation is important because it impacts a university’s quality of education, as well as financial aid, professional licensure and more.
For more information on academic accreditation at ASU Online, please visit the University Program Review and Accreditation Office.
Prior to enrolling at ASU, prospective students living or working outside of the U.S. should confirm with the appropriate certifying agency whether successful completion of any degree program at our accredited online university will meet the credentialing requirements of the country in which they intend to seek employment.
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.
