State Authorization

Federal and state regulations require that all institutions of higher education comply with existing state laws affecting the delivery of distance education (online and correspondence) degrees, programs and courses.

These regulations may limit Cardinal Stritch University’s ability to offer distance education opportunities to students whose physical presence is in a state other than Wisconsin. As these regulations are continuously evolving, Cardinal Stritch University makes every effort to maintain compliance. Students seeking to enroll in an online education program who reside outside the state of Wisconsin, but within the United States, District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories (excludes international locations), should consult with their admissions representative regarding our authorization status in your particular state.  If you are not already working with an admissions counselor, please call 414-410-4042.


If you are a current student who is considering moving from Wisconsin, Minnesota, or Illinois to any other state and would like to maintain your enrollment, please notify your academic advisor as soon as possible to discuss your options for continuing your program.
