The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state. Practical Experiences (including internships and student teaching) are also included. Northwest Missouri State University is a member of both the national (NC SARA) and regional (MHEC) chapters of SARA.
States require that Northwest Missouri State University be authorized to deliver university-level distance/online education to their residents. Each state handles this process differently and Northwest is seeking authorization in most states.
|District of Columbia||OK|
