Fall 2020 Plan and Covid-19 Resource Page.

State Authorizations

The US Department of Education has made several important changes (effective July 1, 2020) to federal laws that govern how colleges and universities operate when offering distance (online or remote) education. Online-only programs at Palo Alto University are:

  • BS in Psychology - Psychology and Social Action, Online Program

  • MS in Psychology

  • MA in Counseling, Online Program

Colleges and universities that offer programs that are entirely online, must have approval to enroll students who are located outside of California in those programs. This approval must come from each state in which an enrolled student is located. For example:

Gabrielle lives in Illinois, and wants to enroll in our online MS program. Before she can enroll, PAU must have explicit approval from the State of Illinois to operate as an institution of higher education in their state. Until this happens, PAU cannot recruit for the MS program in Illinois, nor can PAU admit or enroll Gabrielle.

 

We are currently unable to admit students into our online-only programs if they are located in the following states. Please check back regularly for updates:

Alabama Alaska
Arkansas Connecticut
Delaware District of Columbia
Georgia Illinois
Indiana Iowa
Kansas Maryland
Minnesota Montana
New Mexico New York
North Dakota

North Carolina

MA program only. MS and undergraduate students may enroll.

Oregon Puerto Rico
Rhode Island Wisconsin
