Ferris Online
Alabama - Ferris State Authorization Status

Admission to Online Program

The Higher Education Act of 1965 includes language which stipulates that universities must seek individual state approval prior to offering education to residents of that state, whether online or through local offerings. Not all states enable their residents to take online programs from universities in other states.

Unfortunately at this time we are not authorized to offer our online programs to students who will reside in this state while taking classes.

We do continue to work towards authorization in many states. If you have questions or concerns about your state's legislation which is limiting Ferris's ability to provide online programs to its residents, you may want to contact your state legislators or higher education coordinating board.

 

Questions?

If you have additional questions about Ferris online programs and/or how this might impact residents from your state, please email us at online@ferris.edu.
