State Authorizations and Consumer Disclosures
The United States Department of Education requires that every institution of higher education obtain authorization from each state in which it offers distance education opportunities. In August of 2017, the University of Mount Olive was approved by SARA-NC to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC- SARA). SARA is an agreement among member states, districts, and territories in the United States, which establishes national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to standardize the process of offering online courses and programs by postsecondary institutions located in states other than the state in which the enrolled student(s) are residing.
