State Authorization

As stated by the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements, “State Authorization is an agreement among member states, districts, and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state.”

Out of State Authorization

Admission of students residing outside the state of Texas to an online course, degree or certificate program offered at Brazosport College is dependent upon the college’s ability to secure authorization from the applicant’s state of residence. Brazosport College accepts applicants from a variety of pre-authorized states.
