International Students are advised to understand and be apprised of the rules, regulations, and requirements related to online distance education programs in their country of residence, particularly:
- If the country will recognize an online degree;
- Whether the program meets licensure or certification requirements in the country; and
- If the country charges any additional taxes, withholdings or fees associated with online distance education programs.
Some countries may not formally recognize foreign programs which may have implications for students who later seek to enroll in other educational programs, or for those who seek employment with that country’s government or other employers requiring specific credentials.
If you’re considering enrolling in a program of study that leads to a professional license, contact the appropriate professional licensing board in your country of residence or the country where you intend to work in order to determine whether a program of study from Utah Tech University will be recognized.
