Consumer Information


Alliant is committed to providing clear and accurate information to all prospective and current students. In pursuit of this goal, and in compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, Alliant has created a Consumer Information webpage which can be found at https://www.alliant.edu/consumer-information/. The Consumer Information page presents a variety of policies, procedures, and other important information and disclosures for prospective/current students, parents, employees, and the public. Please note that due to the evolving nature of federal, state, accreditation standards, and institutional guidelines, the information contained on the Consumer Information page is subject to change.

Bankruptcy Statement

Alliant does not have a pending petition in bankruptcy, is not operating as a debtor in possession, has not filed a petition within the preceding five years, and has not had a petition in bankruptcy filed against it within the preceding five years that resulted in reorganization under Chapter 22 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (22 U.S.C. Sec. 1101 et seq.).

Completion, Retention, Graduation/Completion and Transfer-Out Rates

In accordance with the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, Alliant details our Completion, Retention, Graduation, Transfer-Out Rates information on our Consumer Information page. This information may also be accessed directly through the following link: https://p.widencdn.net/cb36n5/Retention_and_Graduation_tables.

State Regulatory Information

State Authorization Compliance

The US Department of Education requires that any institution offering online programs to students seeking federal financial aid who are located outside of the institution’s home state must acquire authorization from the states in which students are located. As regulations may vary, federal or state regulations, and institutional policies may limit or prohibit Alliant’s authorization for delivery of online education to students in certain states. Alliant will continue to monitor applicable regulations and maintain compliance as appropriate.

While the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), established a voluntary state-level reciprocity process with comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance-education courses and programs, California higher education institutions are not yet eligible to take advantage of the SARA reciprocity agreement if they offer distance education in other states. Therefore, Alliant must seek authorization in all states in which the university intends to enroll distance education students.

Alliant does not enroll students from states where the university is not authorized, approved to offer distance education programs, or otherwise exempt from authorization/approval to offer distance education programs.

For the most up-to-date information on State Authorization, please see our State Regulatory Information page on our website: https://www.alliant.edu/state.

Consumer Complaints

Alliant is required to provide a description of the process for submitting consumer complaints in each State in which enrolled students are located. The complaint process for those states in which Alliant is authorized, approved or otherwise exempt to offer distance education programs and enrolls students is detailed in the Authorization Information section of this catalog. Additional information on how to file complaints may be found in the Student Rights and Responsibilities section of this catalog.

Professional Licensure/Certification Disclosure

While some programs at Alliant are intended to prepare students to sit for licensure or certification in the state of California, completion of any program alone does not provide licensure or certification in any particular state, regardless of concentration or specialization. As requirements may vary by state. Students seeking licensure or certification in a particular profession should carefully research the requirements for licensure or certification in their state prior to submitting their application to the university. Alliant University does not guarantee that any state agency or professional organization will accept a graduate’s application to sit for any exam for the purpose of professional licensure or certification.

For programs leading to professional licensure or certification, Alliant is required to disclose to enrolled and prospective students educational prerequisites for licensure or certification in each state in which Alliant enrolls distance education students or has made a determination regarding the educational pre-requisites. Professional licensure information is detailed in the Authorization Information section below.

Please be aware that while Alliant strives to provide the most up-to-date information, state licensure requirements or certification requirements may change at any time. Alliant urges all applicants to visit the entity responsible for licensure or certification in any state in which they wish to obtain licensure for the most current requirements. 

Impact of Change in Location of Residence

Students must contact their respective advisor to discuss any contemplated relocation. Should a student relocate to a state in which Alliant is not authorized, approved, or otherwise exempt from regulations related to offering distance education, continued enrollment cannot be guaranteed. Relocation may impact a student’s Title IV financial aid eligibility, loan repayment or deferment and/or veteran’s benefits. The relocation may also impact a student’s ability to sit for licensure or certification exams. In addition to contacting their respective advisor, students are urged to consult with the Student Financial Services Office and/or Alliant’s Veterans Services Office to determine the impact of a change in location.

State Authorization Information

The list below summarizes Alliant’s authorization status in those states in which the university currently offers distance education programs to that state’s residents; the complaint process for those states in which Alliant is authorized, exempt or otherwise approved to offer distance education programs; and professional licensure or certification information where applicable.
