State Authorization for Distance Education
The United States Government and individual states mandate that higher education institutions offering distance or correspondence education have the approval of each state to operate in that state. Georgia Highlands College works in good faith to obtain authorization in all states. However, authorization status can change over time (expire, require new materials) so we strongly recommend that prospective distance education students contact us to determine whether GHC is authorized to provide post-secondary education in your state.
GHC is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements, which is a voluntary organization that provides a regional approach to state oversight of distance education in the United States.
