Laws exist in each state that govern an institution of higher education's ability to offer programs in that state. We monitor state law developments in every state. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is currently authorized, licensed, exempt, not subject to approval, or permitted to offer most online distance-delivered programs in all 50 states.
Compliant Procedures for Distance Programs
In compliance with US Department of Education regulations, procedures for filing grievances, complaints, or concerns are put in place to ensure you receive an expeditious, fair, and amicable resolution to your situation.
We ask that you first exhaust all possible internal avenues for resolution before filing complaints with external agencies.
