State Authorization for Distance Education

Mayland Community College is working in good-faith to achieve compliance as established in HEOA 600.9 (c):

If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be legally offering postsecondary distance or correspondence education in that State. An institution must be able to document to the Secretary [of Education] the State's approval upon request. (Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1001 and 1002)

Mayland Community College is currently authorized, licensed, registered, exempt or not subject to approval in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.

Due to recent changes in higher education regulations, Mayland Community College is not currently authorized to offer online curriculum programs or courses for students residing in Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Utah, Wisconsin, or Wyoming.  Prospective students may realize the institution is not currently authorized and choose not to pursue enrollment.

Student Complaints and Grievances Resolution

Pursuant to the United States Department of Education’s Program Integrity Rule, each institution of higher education is required to provide all prospective and current students with the contact information of the state agency or agencies that handle complaints against postsecondary education institutions offering distance learning within that state.  Mayland Community College students should attempt to resolve all issues and complaints within the guidelines of the college's Student Grievance Policy.  Below is a list of contacts from each state so that a student may file a complaint with that state, however, we ask that you please try to resolve all complaints with the college prior to going to any outside agency:
