Tracking SARA: An Update on the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement


The federal regulation requiring institutions to get local approval (if needed) when serving students in other states is on hold but might return. Meanwhile, the states still expect institutions to follow their laws before they serve students within their boundaries. The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) would allow states to recognize the approval process within an institution’s home state.

This session will provide you with an update on the players involved in this agreement, the current proposals on how states join the agreement, the proposed steps for institutions to participate, the impact on students, and the time frame for implementing SARA.
