State Authorization

Dixie State University (DSU) is an approved SARA institution within the state of Utah, which is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). This means we adhere to established standards for offering post-secondary e-learning programs in all member states.

All DSU fully online programs are currently authorized in all states; however, there may be restrictions in certain non-SARA states regarding internships and practicums.

While we monitor the laws in each state, the authorization of distance education is a dynamic environment, prospective students should check this site often for updates.

Per federal law, students who have petitions/complaints against the school relating to fraud, false advertising, or other deceptive practices can report their petitions/complaints to Dixie State University by following the Student Petition/Complaint Process.

Professional Licensure Information

The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, specifically 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v) and 34 CFR 668.43(c) require disclosures by institutions regarding educational requirements for programs leading to professional licensure or certification regardless of modality. 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v) requires an institution to make readily available to enrolled and prospective students information about whether programs leading to professional licensure or certification meet educational requirements.

This regulation requires us to determine whether or not our licensure-related programs satisfy the educational requirements for professional licensure in the states where our prospective students are located.

Accordingly, we are required to disclose for each program that leads to licensure whether:
(1) the program meets the educational requirements for professional licensure in a specific state;
(2) the program does not meet the educational requirements for professional licensure in a specific state; or
(3) we have not determined whether our program meets a particular state’s educational requirements.

Because licensing requirements differ dramatically by occupational category as well as by state, we encourage prospective students to check their state legislative codes to verify the information presented here. We will strive to update this information on an annual basis by July 1 of each year.

We make reasonable efforts so that program of study curricula align with and meet the educational requirements for professional licensure. We also make reasonable efforts so that state-professional licensure information is current. However, professional licensure requirements are frequently revised and may involve non-educational requirements which may include (but are not limited to): additional post-graduation examinations or experience, application and licensing fees, criminal background checks, reference checks, fingerprint submissions, etc. Continuing education may also be required for maintenance of licensure/certification.

For licensing board contact information, licensure requirements and program approval status, please see below.

Note:  The Actuarial Science emphasis will provide an interdisciplinary approach by collaborating with mathematics, Business, Economics, and finance programs. Students will prepare for Actuarial Exams P/1 and FM/2 and develop the knowledge and skills necessary for a wide range of job opportunities such as mathematicians, actuaries, operations research analysts, and statisticians. These two exams (Exam P/1 and Exam FM/2) are part of the preliminary exams sequence to attain Associate of the Society of Actuaries (ASA) designation. These two exams alone DO NOT satisfy any license or certification. Passing these two exams would prepare our ACM– Actuarial Science emphasis students for entry-level actuarial jobs. More information about the exams and qualifications for becoming an ASA with the detailed description of actuarial employment opportunities can be found in the link below.

Athletic Training - Masters

Note:  Dixie State University is currently seeking accreditation for its new Athletic Training program and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).  The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the accreditation process on July 1, 2021. Submission of the self-study and completion of a site visit does not guarantee that the program will become accredited.  Students that graduate from the program prior to accreditation WILL NOT be eligible to sit for the credentialing examination for athletic trainers and will not be eligible for licensure in most states.  Dixie State University is anticipating the program will be accreditated during AY 21-22.

National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) – state licensure requirements

Respiratory Therapy

All states require students to pass a national credentialing exam (CRT or RRT) given by the NBRC. To qualify to take the exam, you must have completed/graduated from a CoARC accredited program. Our program is accredited by CoARC.

State licensure is mandatory for respiratory therapists practicing in the U.S., with the exception of Alaska. Although the requirements for licensure are similar from one state to the next (e.g., education and certification requirements), the application process may differ somewhat according to the state licensing board. Candidates for licensure should carefully study their state’s licensing requirements to ensure they have met or exceeded qualifications for licensure.

Professional licensure standards are MET by Dixie State for your selected program in the following states and/or territories:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas

Surgical Technology

Utah has no licensure requirement for surgical technologists, although some states have licensure requirements. See the Association of Surgical Technologists link below.  Unique requirements may be employer-specific; many hospitals and surgery centers do require certification for employment.

DSU Surgical Technology Program graduates are eligible to take the National Board Certifying Examination administered through the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) to become a Certified Surgical Technologist (CST). This certification is recognized in all 50 states.

Information for International Students

While we carefully track issues related to international authorization and licensure, it is a student’s responsibility to understand requirements related to whether an online degree or certificate will be recognized in a country other than the United States, how the collection of student data may be used in another country, and whether withholding taxes (in addition to the price of tuition) will apply.

Some countries may not formally recognize foreign online degrees and certificates, which may have implications for students who later seek to enroll in other educational programs, or for those who seek employment with that country’s government or other employers requiring specific credentials.

If you’re considering enrolling in an online program that leads to a professional license, contact the appropriate professional licensing board in your country of residence or the country where you intend to work in order to determine whether an online degree or certificate from DSU will be recognized.

Student Complaints

Students who have a complaint against DSU should first read the complaint process found in DSU Policy 552, section 6.2.  Students can file a complaint via the “Ask the Dean” webform.

If DSU does not resolve the complaint, students may file a complaint with the Utah Board of Regents at www.higheredutah.org/sara. The Board of Regents will only consider complaints that were previously unresolved by the institution and may refer a complaint to another agency for investigation.

Student who have complaints against college/university relating to fraud, false advertising, or other deceptive practices can file a complaint with the Utah Division of Consumer Protection.

Students who have complaints relating to the college/university’s quality of education or other issues appropriate for its accrediting body to consider, can file a complaint with the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities following their policy explained at https://www.nwccu.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Complaints-Regarding-Member-or-Candidate-Institutions-Policy.pdf.
