State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) provides a uniform compliance option for more than 1900 participating institutions nationwide in member states. Currently, 49 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have been approved as SARA member states. Distance education activities, such as online learning and supervised field experiences, are authorized through SARA for SARA participating institutions offering their activities in SARA member states. This session will give a brief update on the national SARA landscape, provide insights on the current U.S. Department of Education regulations, share information about enrollment data that has been collected on online learners (including data from 3 years of reporting and the lessons learned from the first year optional placement reporting), and discuss upcoming SARA projects, such as the NC-SARA website, the Searchable Catalog of Programs, and The Guide. This presentation will provide ample time for questions from the audience.
