State Authorizations

The United States Department of Education requires that institutions comply with applicable authorization requirements in each state in which distance education instruction is delivered to its residents. Consequently, Brandman University monitors developments in each state’s laws and is constantly working with Higher Education authorities throughout the states to ensure compliance with these requirements. While our only physical campuses are in California and Washington, our online programs are accessible to students from every state and sometimes require that we seek State Authorization for those programs. In addition to potential State Authorization requirements, and pursuant to 34 CFR 668.43(b), institutions must provide current and prospective students with contact information for filing complaints with the appropriate state agency in that student's home state. Some states also require Brandman University to include specific language in the catalog and/or website. We have included the following statements and state contact information to satisfy these requirements.
