20 AAC 17.015 addresses criteria for institutions which can be recognized in an exempt status and internally it has been determined that our regulations don’t address online or distance instruction as clearly as we would like and thus we are now currently in a change in regulation process which will add an additional exempt category for online or distance delivered program that does not have a physical presence within the state. Additionally, the regulation change will include a definition of physical presence as meaning the presence of facility, equipment, faculty or staff within the state. Thus, as an out-of-state institution with no physical presence within our state that wishes to distance deliver instruction to Alaskan residents, we ask that you apply for an exempt status with our agency through the completion and submission of our Application for Exemption from Authorization form which can be found at the following link:

  1. On the bottom of the Alaska form it says that you must submit a meningitis form/ letter. If you are offering the programs/ courses 100% via distance learning, this is not true, per a phone conversation with the reps at the number on top of the Alaska form.
