This recent podcast explored the necessary steps to take for an online institution to obtain and maintain state licensure for online classes.
Dr. Frank McCluskey, VP, Scholar in Residence at APU interviewed Dr. Russell Kitchner who gave insight into how to get licensure in all 50 states. Dr. Kitchner explains that licensure is more about building relationships between the institutions. He also shares a handful of very stringent tasks that some schools have had to follow in order to achieve licensure; like a program by program review, reviewing the university catalog, and checking up on the organizations refund policy.
