Prospective distance learning students residing in Alabama, Iowa, North Carolina, Massachusetts, and Maryland: Due to higher education regulations and the complexity of rules and regulations of some states, Texas Christian University (TCU), is currently unable to accept new applications for admissions to our distance education programs and courses from students residing in Alabama, Iowa, North Carolina, Massachusetts, and Maryland. TCU is also unable to allow for-credit field experiences, including internships, clinical, and practicums to take place in these states. We regret this restriction as it is our goal to offer a quality education to students everywhere.
