September 2016 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

State Approvals

Herzing University is authorized to offer undergraduate educational programs in the various states in which it operates by the following state boards, commissions, and departments, or otherwise pursuant to applicable state law. Not all programs are available in all states. Students should not confuse permission for Herzing University to operate in a state or educate students from a particular state online with special or programmatic approvals that may be required or preferred to work in a given field in some states. Students should independently investigate and ensure that the program they desire is offered on the campus they intend to enroll in via the desired format and with the potential outcome they desire. Students should rely only on the written information provided in the academic catalog and not on oral or unofficial representations or other documents. The fact that a program is currently offered on a campus does not ensure, nor does Herzing University guarantee, that all courses will always be available on that campus in the specific format the student selected; however, a student will always be provided with a path to completion, despite the potential change in format of course offerings.

Other States (Distance/Online Education)

Herzing Online has made a good-faith effort to follow each individual state’s regulations concerning offering distance educational programs in that respective state. Students should investigate and ensure that the program they desire, if offered in a distance/online format, meets the requirements of the profession in their state. Herzing University makes every effort to ensure it is in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and accreditation standards. Education on the State level is regulated by each of the 50 States plus U.S. Territories. Therefore, it is possible that Herzing University has the authority to offer degrees to students through license, exemption or non-regulation by one State that does not exist in another State. Students who are admitted into Herzing University while living in one State should, prior to relocating to another State, inquire from Herzing University as to whether or not it is authorized (license, exemption or non-regulation) to offer the degree program to students in their new State. Failure to assure whether or not Herzing University has the ability to offer degrees in the State of a student’s new residency could result in the student having to be dismissed by the University as may be required by law.
