State Authorization

Program Availability in Your State

As Azusa Pacific University works to meet federal and state authorization requirements in states outside California, APU’s home state, we want to bring to your attention that APU’s programs are not available in all states. Through the information listed below, we hope to assist you in better meeting your academic goals.

State authorization of distance education is a complex and dynamic environment. Prospective students should check this site often for updates.

At this time, APU is unable to offer distance programs or courses to students residing in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Washington, DC.

We will continue to serve out-of-state students while working with individual state authorization agencies to meet institutional authorization requirements.

If APU cannot currently provide distance education in your state, please check back soon, as the information here changes often.
