Labouré College of Healthcare is obligated to comply with other states’ laws regarding the delivery of distance education to residents of other states.
Residency – Course and program availability varies by state. Admission into a program is granted at the time of initial acceptance into the program and is dependent on program availability in the state where the student is physically located at the time of admission. If a student moves to a different state after admission to the program, continuation within the program will depend on the availability of the program within the new state where the student is physically present. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the college of a change in physical presence. Whether military personnel stationed outside the state of Massachusetts may enroll or continue in a Labouré College of Healthcare distance education program, or not, is based on where military personnel are stationed.
Licensure – State authorization has no effect on state professional licensing requirements. If you are considering an academic program that leads to a professional license in your state, it is highly recommended that you first seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency in your home state BEFORE beginning the academic program located outside your state. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the appropriate licensing board in his/her home state to confirm whether a Labouré College of Healthcare program will meet the requirements for licensure in that state. Labouré College of Healthcare cannot confirm whether the course or program meets requirements for professional licensure in the student’s state.
Labouré College of Healthcare is committed to integrating institutional objectives in innovative ways to demonstrate excellence in all online programs. The college greatly values students’ experiences and urges all students to adhere to the Student Code of Conduct.
When an issue is brought to the college’s attention, the college will take appropriate action to seek resolution. Students are encouraged to pursue Labouré College of Healthcare’s internal complaint procedures for any complaints before contacting external sources for resolution. Often, it is the case that communication with the course professor is the most direct route to resolving issues. If an issue cannot be resolved at that level, a student should contact the Academic Chair for guidance.
