NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of post-secondary distance education. A “State authorization reciprocity agreement”, SARA, is an agreement between two or more States that authorizes an institution located and legally authorized in a State covered by the agreement to provide post-secondary education through distance education or correspondence courses to students in other States covered by the agreement.
