Online Learning State Authorizations

A good regulatory framework for online learning can expand access to affordable, high quality options for postsecondary education.

State Authorizations

In 2010, the U.S. Department of Education required each state to authorize education offered from institutions outside their state.

Florida is currently a part of the State Regional Education Board's (SREB) Electronic Regional Reciprocity Agreement (SECRRA), which allows online courses approved by their home state to be delivered to any state who is part of the agreement. The agreement ended on June 30, 2016.
