The day-to-day work of state authorization can be tedious, but it protects the value of each student's education.
Maintaining state authorization for The Ohio State University requires constant work. The state authorization team regularly reviews regulations, submits information to regulators, shares disclosures with current and prospective students, and reports collected student location data. This diligence helps maintain Ohio State's authorization to offer online and on-ground activities nationwide.
