State laws across the nation require universities to be authorized to legally deliver online education to students residing in states other than the home state of the institution.

In other words, applicants who reside outside California will only be admitted to online courses or degree programs offered by Loma Linda University if the university has secured legal authorization from the applicant’s state of residence.

Loma Linda University is actively pursuing state authorization in every state of the nation; however, various state laws and fees might prohibit the university from achieving authorization in particular states. As a prospective student, if you reside in a state not currently on our state authorization list, we suggest contacting your state’s department of education for more information.

Prospective students can apply from the following states:

Alabama Kansas Nevada Tennessee
Alaska Kentucky New Hampshire Texas
Arizona Maine Ohio Utah
California Michigan Oklahoma Vermont
Colorado Mississippi Pennsylvania Virginia
Florida Missouri Rhode Island Wisconsin
Hawaii Montana South Carolina  
Idaho Nebraska North Dakota  
Illinois New Jersey South Dakota Guam
