You may have seen the term “state authorization” floating around Ohio State’s websites, especially if you’re in a licensed field, like nursing or teaching. But what is state authorization and how does it impact you as a prospective or current student?
State authorization isn’t just about online education anymore. New disclosure rules require institutions to disclose licensure information to current and prospective students, regardless of whether the program is offered online or on campus.
Over the last year, Ohio State’s state authorization team has played an important role in the State Authorization Network (SAN) effort to share experiences and knowledge related to professional licensure research and disclosure processes.
