Because courses in this program will only be available online, this program may not be available to all applicants. The MSN degree program concentrations require that all clinical experiences be completed in the state of Louisiana. Additionally, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and its online programs must be in compliance in the state where a student is located. (Visit the Online Programs website to learn more.) However, UL Lafayette online programs may not meet eligibility requirements for a license or certificate in another state. If you are planning to use your degree to pursue a license or certificate outside of Louisiana, it is strongly recommended that you contact the appropriate entity in that state to seek information and guidance regarding their requirements. Finally, international students also may not be eligible. According to U.S. immigration regulations, F-1 students cannot pursue online degrees; international students in other visa categories (i.e., H-4, L2) are exempt from this restriction.
