The U.S. Department of Education requires that any institution offering online programs to students who reside outside of its home state must acquire authorization from the states in which students reside. Regulations vary from state to state and, as such, federal, state, and institutional policies may limit Sofia University’s authorization to deliver online education to students in certain states. Sofia University is licensed, registered, authorized, certified, or formally exempt in the following states and territories as indicated below.
Sofia University continues to monitor the requirements in other states, and may modify the below listing of approvals or exemptions. Please check with Admissions for additional information about the state in which you reside.
NOTE: Change in Location of Student
Students must note that changing their location from a state where Sofia meets State requirements to a state where Sofia does not meet State requirements may have consequences including inability to enroll or loss of eligibility for Title IV federal financial aid funds. Students must contact their advisor to discuss any change in location prior to relocation. Should a student relocate to a state in which Sofia University is not authorized to provide distance education, continued enrollment cannot be guaranteed.
The Sofia University Tuition Refund Schedule applies to students who drop or are administratively dropped from a course or the institution. For the full policy and refund schedule, please visit https://www.sofia.edu/consumer-information/.
