State Authorization for Online Students

Colleges and universities are required to comply with the distance education laws of each individual state. Monroe County Community College is authorized to offer distance education and field experiences to students residing in Ohio.

Refunds and Fee Adjustments: Refunds for online, out-of-state (distance education) students residing in Ohio are determined by Monroe County Community College. Refer to MCCC’s Tuition & Fees Policy: (Inside Policy 3.05 Tuition & Fees).  

Educational Prerequisites for Professional Licensure or Certification in Ohio
NURSING: The Ohio Board of Nursing requires that a student must complete a program that is approved by the jurisdiction of the National Council on State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN). MCCC’s nursing program meets this requirement.

Thinking of Moving? As an out-of-state student, you will be responsible for checking state authorizations before you relocate to another state. Relocation to a state in which your program is not authorized could result in loss of transferability of your program credits.
