State Authorization
Queens University of Charlotte aims to offer our online programs strategically across the United States as best suits student interest and need.  Queens is a member of the Southern Regional Educational Board's Electronic Campus in partnership with numerous states in the southern region. As part of Electronic Campus, Queens abides by the established standards for offering post-secondary distance education among member states.  Additionally, Queens works with states outside the Southern Regional Educational Board to ensure that required licensure or approvals are obtained as needed. While Queens makes every effort to monitor the laws in each state, both in the southern region and beyond, state authorization of online education is a complex and ever-changing setting and prospective students are strongly encouraged to monitor this site often for updates and changes. It is the student's responsibility to understand current circumstances or special requirements in their state of residence.

Queens online programs are exempt from authorization in Alaska under AS 14.48 because the programs are online and do not have a physical presence in the state. 20 AAC 17.900(a)(12) defines physical presence as presence of a facility, faculty, or staff within the state.

Georgia:
Students of Queens University of Charlotte residing in Georgia are permitted to follow the Complaint Process posted on the State of Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission website.

Texas:
Queens University of Charlotte is not regulated in Texas under Chapter 132 of the Texas Education Code and therefore does not fall under the purview of the Texas Workforce Commission.
