I have recently found that the Kentucky Council on Post-Seondary Education regulates all distance programs. It appears that state employees, mainly teachers, cannot enroll in online graduate programs out of state. I have heard they have done this to keep more money in the state. Does anyone else know anything about this? Do other states have similar regulations?

It sounds like terms and conditions from a credit card or something. Maybe a lawyer can read it.
