Out-of-State Students

The College of Westchester is approved by the State of New York Department of Education to voluntarily participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA).  This now allows for CW registered online programs to be accessible in almost all states.  All admissions acceptance criteria apply.  CW does not presently accept students from Massachusetts, California, or Puerto Rico due to regulatory requirements in these states.  If requirements change, CW will update the website to reflect the regulatory change.  For further information, contact our Admissions Office at 855.403.7722 or 914.559.2398.

Online programs are subject to regulation by New York, as well as by the state of each student's residence. Since student’s state residency may affect eligibility to remain enrolled in the College, it is essential that online students intending to change their state of residence notify their Academic Advisor as soon as possible in advance.
