The Mises Institute is licensed by the Private School Licensure Division, Alabama Community College System pursuant to the Alabama Private School License Law, Code of Alabama, Title 16-46-1 through 10.

Alabama licensure currently enables the Mises Institute to offer its online graduate programs to residents of thirty-four U.S. states (although we plan to offer the program to residents of the remaining sixteen states as soon as possible). Unfortunately, certain states prohibit the offering of online classes to their residents absent additional licensure in their respective state. As such, residents of the following states and jurisdictions currently cannot be admitted to our graduate program and, thus, no applications will be accepted from residents of the following jurisdictions: Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Should a student need to file a complaint about a private postsecondary school, a list of contacts to obtain forms and procedures can be found here.
