State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement

In May 2021, CCU was approved to participate in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) by the Arizona SARA Council, which is a member of NC SARA and the state portal entity for Arizona SARA participating institutions (

Participation in SARA allows CCU to provide online distance learning in participating SARA states and US Territories. Please visit the NC SARA website for a list of current participating NC SARA states and US Territories (

SARA is an agreement among member states, districts, and territories that establishes national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs.
