Programs by State
It is the student’s responsibility to understand the requirements for whether an online degree will be recognized in the student’s country of residence and/or any country in which the student intends to work; how the collection of student data may be used in that country; and whether there are any tax implications in addition to the price of tuition.
Several countries will not formally recognize foreign online degrees, 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 employers requiring specific credentials. International students considering an academic program that leads to a professional license should first confirm with the appropriate licensing board in their country of residence or country in which they intend to work as to whether an online degree from UNM is recognized when seeking licensure or certification.
