The following list is intended to help prospective students determine whether Spartan College, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is authorized to teach online/distance education (DE) coursework to students located outside of Oklahoma. The states listed in red require authorization that the College does not hold; therefore, Spartan is unable to enroll students located in that state for DE coursework.
