The U.S. Department of Education has established requirements that regulate distance education programs offered by institutions in one state to residents of other states. These state regulations are intended to protect student-consumers related to a variety of issues that may come about during the course of their education. Grace College makes every effort to comply with existing state laws related to its delivery of distance education. As part of this compliance effort, Grace College is approved to operate under the terms and standards of the State Authorization Reciprocity Network (SARA) to facilitate the process of state authorization.
Students are advised to speak with the Department of Online Education before moving from an authorized state to an unauthorized state prior to completing their distance education program. Students interested in the online Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program should determine the educational and other licensing requirements in the state(s) in which they plan to seek a license prior to enrolling in this program.
