Distance Education State Authorization List

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. Further, students who move from an authorized state to an unauthorized state may be unable to continue DE coursework.
