The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is an agreement among member states, establishing national standards for interstate distance education courses and programs. SARA intends to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by institutions based in another state.

For more on SARA, please visit the website of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), the national organization responsible for coordinating the efforts of the four regional education compacts.
