SREB SARA Documents
State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) are agreements among SARA member states, districts and U.S. territories that establish comparable national standards for interstate offerings of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. They are intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions in a state other than the one where they reside. SARA is overseen by a national council and administered by four regional higher education compacts, MHEC, NEBHE, SREB and WICHE. The four SARA agreements of these compacts are collectively referred to as the agreements.
