No. You do not have to live in Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, or Washington in order to complete certain programs. However, it is recommended that you live near a campus in order to receive any number of our resources.

Some of our programs, however, do require you to live near campus because they are Blended Learning programs or offered fully on campus. Students enrolled in Blended Learning programs would be expected to attend classes several days a week and complete the rest of their studies at home. The Blended Learning programs include Medical Assistant, Dental Assisting, Nursing, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Pharmacy Technician, Veterinary Assistant, HVAC/R, and Welding. Fully on-campus programs include Nursing.
