States require that the University of Missouri be in compliance with their regulations to deliver university-level distance/online education to their residents. Each state handles this process differently.

Note This information is subject to change. If you have concerns or questions, please contact Mizzou Online at 1-800-609-3727.

Mizzou is in compliance with 50 states to offer university-level online programs.

You can apply for admission to Mizzou for a university-level online course or online degree/certificate UNLESS you fit any of the following situations:

  • Alabama: We are unable to take new enrollments from AL residents in MU’s online nursing degree programs except for the Nursing Ph.D. See Consumer Disclosures for official statement from Alabama.
  • Louisiana: We are not able to serve LA residents who want to enroll in nursing courses or programs that require in-Louisiana clinical experiences (e.g. supervised clinical courses) that lead to APRN (Advanced Practice Registered Nurse) licensure. We cannot accept applications from LA residents for the online nursing DNP or the social work program. We can accept LA residents into our online nursing RN-to-BSN, MSN, and PhD programs as well as Mizzou's other online programs.
  • Maryland: Nursing students residing in Maryland may enroll in the Doctor of Nursing Practice with an emphasis in family nurse practitioner (DNP) and the Nursing PhD programs and Mizzou's fully-online degrees and certificates. We are NOT able to serve Maryland residents in other Nursing programs requiring in-Maryland clinical experiences (e.g. supervised clinical courses). Students who are Maryland residents and coded as "Mizzou distance students" are subject to this refund policy.
  • Massachusetts: We are not able to serve Massachusetts residents who want to enroll in courses or programs that require in-MA clinical experiences (e.g. Supervised clinical courses) or any internships, externships or clinical practica. You are eligible to enroll in any of our online classes or programs that don’t require in-MA experiences, including the nursing Ph.D.
  • New York: We are not able to serve New York residents who want to enroll in courses or programs that require in-NY clinical experiences (e.g. supervised clinical courses). This means we cannot accept applications from NY residents for online nursing or social work programs that have clinical practica; the nursing Ph.D. is open to NY residents. You are eligible to enroll in any of our online courses/programs that don't require in-NY clinical experiences, including the nursing Ph.D.
  • North Carolina: We are not able to serve NC residents in online courses or programs that require in-North Carolina clinical experiences (e.g. Supervised clinical courses).

You are eligible to enroll in any of our online courses/programs that don't require in-North Carolina clinical experiences, including the nursing Ph.D.
  • Oregon: We are not able to serve OR residents who want to enroll in courses or programs that require in-Oregon clinical experiences (e.g. Supervised clinical courses). This means we cannot accept applications from OR residents for most online nursing or social work programs. You are eligible to enroll in any of our online courses/programs that don't require in-Oregon clinical experiences, including the nursing Ph.D.
  • Washington: You are not able to serve WA residents who want to enroll in courses or programs that require in-Washington clinical experiences (e.g. Supervised clinical courses).
