Alliant International University works with a variety of state boards, commissions, and other higher education agencies to seek their exception, registration, approval(s), authorization(s), and required licenses to operate in their state of jurisdiction. As part of this process, the university is sometimes required to make state-specific disclosures or information available to prospective and/or current students.

This webpage details this important information to our students as required by state. Please note that individual programs may not be approved or may be pending approval by a state licensing authority, and/or cannot be offered to students residing in that state regardless of status.
