NU Participates in NC-SARA
NationsUniversity is pleased to announce that it is an institutional participant in the SARA initiative. NationsU will be listed on the SARA website (www.nc-sara.org) and we want all our partners and especially students to know about this exciting development.
The National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements 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. SARA is overseen by a National Council and administered by four regional education compacts.
A great deal of work has gone into the development and implementation of the SARA initiative and NationsU is proud to a part of this. We know that SARA is increasing administrative efficiency and lowering the costs of obtaining authorization to provide postsecondary distance education in states that join. These benefits are resulting in increased access as more institutions like ours are able to make their academic programs more widely available and accept enrollments from students in many other states.
However, increased access and efficiency will mean little if they are not accompanied by high quality. That is why all SARA institutions annually commit to several steps designed to ensure that courses and programs they offer through the SARA initiative provide high-quality learning opportunities that can help students reach their goals.
NationsUniversity is committed to offering the latest innovations in education and technology.
