NIMAA makes every effort to follow each individual state’s regulations regarding the offering of distance education programs in each state. Students should research whether the program at NIMAA meets the requirements of the profession in their state. NIMAA makes every effort to ensure it is in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and accreditation standards. Education on the state level is regulated by each of the 50 states plus U.S. Territories. It is possible that NIMAA has the authority to offer its program to students through license, exemption or non-regulation by one state that does not exist in another state. Prior to relocating to another state, students who are enrolled in NIMAA must inquire as to whether NIMAA is authorized (license, exemption or non-regulation) to offer the same program to students in their new state. Failure to assure whether NIMAA can operate its program in the state of a student’s new residency may result in student dismissal by NIMAA, as required by law. Transferability of earned credits from NIMAA may be affected should the student move to a state where the program is not recognized. If the student should discontinue the program and wishes to return at a later time, acceptance to the program will be dependent upon the current status of licensure and recognition of the state that the student resides in at the time of re-entry.
NIMAA accepts students for enrollment in distance education in the states below adhering to their requirements. A link to each state's complaint process is included for reference:
