State Authorization Status

Distance Education Students Residing Outside of Illinois: Each state has its own approval process for out-of-state institutions offering distance education. While Illinois Eastern Community Colleges endeavors to offer all of its courses and programs to as wide an audience as possible, all IECC distance education courses and programs may not be available in all states. Currently, we do not offer distance courses and programs in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Wyoming.  See chart below:


All U.S. States require post-secondary educational institutions to be legally authorized to provide post-secondary educational instruction in their states. Many of these state laws and regulations also apply to online/distance delivered courses. As such, Illinois Eastern Community Colleges (IECC) division of online/distance education programs must be authorized in certain states prior to offering fully online courses and programs to students in those states. The purpose of this approval process is to comply with any state authorization requirement applicable to IECC online/distance educational programs.
