Columbia College's authorization by state is listed under the state link on the state regulatory information page.
Consequences of residency change
Degree program availability varies by state based on state agency authorizations. Not all degree programs are available in all states or formats. As such, if a student changes their location this may impact their availability to continue in their degree program.
Students who relocate to a state where Columbia College does not meet state licensure or certification requirements for a program in a licensed career field may not be able to sit for a licensure exam in that state. Students are advised to contact their academic advisor to fully understand the impact that a location change has on the program they are currently enrolled in.
Description of complaint process
