Alliant International University State Authorization Status


State Authorization Compliance

The US Department of Education requires that any institution offering online programs to students who reside outside of its home state must acquire authorization from the states in which students reside. Regulations vary from state to state, as such, federal, state, and institutional policies may limit or prohibit Alliant’s authorization for delivery of online education to students in certain states. Alliant will continue to monitor state and federal laws and regulations and if authorization or licensure is or becomes necessary, will promptly seek to obtain such approvals in states in which it enrolls students.

While the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), established a voluntary state-level reciprocity process with comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance-education courses and programs, California higher education institutions are not yet eligible to take advantage of the SARA reciprocity agreement if they offer distance education in other states. Therefore, Alliant must seek authorization in all states in which the university intends to enroll distance education students.

Alliant does not enroll students from states where the university is not authorized, exempt or otherwise approved to offer distance education programs.

Consumer Complaints

All students are encouraged to utilize the University Problem Solving and Dispute Resolution Guidelines detailed in the Student Rights and Responsibilities section of the Academic Catalog to informally or formally file complaints. However, any student may contact his or her specific state agency directly to register a complaint. The US Department of Education further requires that Alliant provide information for submitting complaints to the State authority in which the university’s main campus is located.

Alliant’s main campus is located at:
10455 Pomerado Road
San Diego, CA 92131

Alliant is approved to operate by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. Approval to operate means the institution is compliant with the minimum standards contained in the California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009 and the California Code of Regulations.

A student or any member of the public may file a complaint about Alliant with the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education by calling (888) 370-7589 or by completing a complaint form, which can be obtained on the bureau’s internet website (https://www.bppe.ca.gov/).

Alliant is also required to provide a description of the process for submitting consumer complaints in each State in which enrolled students reside. The complaint process for those states in which Alliant is authorized, exempt or otherwise approved to offer distance education programs and enrolls students is detailed in the Authorization Information section below.

Professional Licensure/Certification Disclosure

While some programs at Alliant are intended to prepare students to sit for licensure or certification in the state of California, completion of any program by itself does not provide licensure or certification in any state, regardless of concentration or specialization. Students seeking licensure or certification in a particular profession should carefully research the requirements for licensure or certification prior to enrollment. Requirements may vary by state. Alliant does not guarantee that any professional organization will accept a graduate’s application to sit for any exam for the purpose of professional licensure or certification.

For programs leading to professional licensure or certification, Alliant is required to disclose enrolled and prospective students educational prerequisites for licensure or certification in each state in which Alliant enrolls distance education students or has made a determination regarding the educational pre-requisites. Professional licensure information is detailed in the Authorization Information section below.

Please be aware that while Alliant strives to provide the most up-to-date information, state licensure requirements may change anytime, Alliant urges all applicants to visit the board responsible for licensure or certification in any state in which they wish to obtain licensure for the most current licensure or certification requirements.

Professional Licensure/Certification Disclosures

Impact of Change in Location of Residence

Students must contact Alliant Admissions to discuss any change in their state of residence prior to relocation. Should a student relocate to a state in which Alliant is not authorized to provide distance education, continued enrollment cannot be guaranteed. This may also impact a student’s Title IV financial aid eligibility, loan repayment or deferment and/or veteran’s benefits. Students should consult with the Student Financial Services Office and/or Alliant’s Veterans Services Office to determine the impact of a change in location.

Authorization Information

The list below summarizes Alliant’s authorization status in those states in which the university currently offers distance education programs to that state’s residents; the complaint process for those states in which Alliant is authorized, exempt or otherwise approved to offer distance education programs; and professional licensure or certification information where applicable.
