NC-SARA’s New 2019 Data Reporting Handbook and Webcast


The timeframe to report distance education enrollments and out-of-state learning placements is May 14-June 4, 2019. All data reporting information can be found on the Data Info tab on the NC-SARA website. For your convenience, each institution’s SARA contacts will be sent a URL link to a web form on or around May 14, 2019. Please verify with your SPE that your institution’s SARA contact information is up to date.

There are a few changes in 2019 reporting protocol of which institutions need to be aware. Follow the link for these details and to read the New NC-SARA Blog Post in its entirety.

This year, the data reporting guide and the placement reporting guide have been combined into the 2019 Data Reporting Handbook to provide information about how to efficiently submit both data sets to NC-SARA. To ensure institutions review the purpose, authority, parties and terms of the agreement between themselves and NC-SARA, institutional approval of the Spring 2019 Data-Sharing Agreement will be provided as part of the reporting process.

NC-SARA will offer a data reporting webcast that is scheduled for Thursday, April 4, 2019. The webcast will better help institutions with this year’s reporting by providing an overview of the handbook and the new guidelines for reporting specifically, as well as leave time for questions and discussion.
