State Authorization for Distance Education

United Theological Seminary offers online ministry degree programs in every U.S. state.

Federal and state regulations require that all institutions of higher education comply with existing state laws regarding distance learning. As these regulations are continuously evolving, United Theological Seminary makes every effort to maintain compliance. As a condition of United’s authority to offer its programs to state residents, several postsecondary education agencies require the publication of certain consumer information.
