The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)
The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a voluntary agreement among its member states and U.S. territories that establishes one set of national standards and regulations for offering postsecondary distance education courses and programs. SARA is administered by four regional educational compacts and overseen by NC-SARA.
New York University (NYU) is a SARA participating member institution and is authorized pursuant to SARA to enroll students in online courses, including continuing education (CE), and field experiences (up to ten students per site per program) in the SARA states and territories listed below. However, please note that certain programs leading to professional licensure may be subject to additional state professional licensing requirements, which are not covered by SARA. For more information about these requirements, please see the NC-SARA website.
