Distance Education Authorization

William Jessup University strives to meet federal and state authorization requirement for offering distance education in states other than California. Please review the State Disclosures webpage to see whether or not William Jessup University is currently authorized to offer distance learning education in your home state.

Note: WJU is not authorized to provide distance education outside the U.S. The content on these pages change frequently for prospective students living in states where WJU is currently unauthorized to offer distance education, please check for updates.

If you are planning on enrolling in a course/program for teaching, paralegal, health sciences, psychology, accounting, nursing or any other field that may require a license, certification, registration, permit or any other credential for employment, before applying please contact the professional licensing board in your State to confirm the course(s)/program is recognized, e.g. Dept. of Education, Ministry of Education, certifying agency, etc. Distance education may not be acknowledged or accepted where you reside. You (student) are responsible prior to applying to a program and prior to being accepted to WJU to verify applicability of the program and that it meets all requirements once you complete distance education.

William Jessup University has not determined if our programs provide all the educational requirements necessary for professional licensure or certification in a student’s country or state, outside of California. Students considering a program that leads to a professional license in a state need to contact the appropriate licensing agency and organization(s) in that state to seek information and additional guidance before registering or beginning the program.  Students should also continue to monitor changes throughout the program as licensure requirements may change over time.
