State authorization allows Texas A&M University to offer educational opportunities to students among other states and nationwide.
National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA)
Texas was approved as a SARA state in 2015, and is administered by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB.) "The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement is a voluntary agreement among its member states and U.S. territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance-education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state." -NC-SARA
If planning to gain a degree that may lead to a professional licensure or certification, we encourage students to reach out to the state and licensing agency in which the license will be held to ensure acceptance from our programs.
