As a result of recent amendments to the Higher Education Act, federal law requires college distance learning programs to obtain approval from individual U.S. states in order to provide online courses to students in that state. The University of Delaware is actively pursuing approval for its distance learning courses and programs and has completed the approval process for many states, in compliance with the legislation that states:
"If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be legally offering distance or correspondence education in that State."
