State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

Information on this page pertains only to out-of-state students taking courses online.

Nicolet College ensures that the programs the college offers comply with a state's regulations before offering instruction within that state. The state regulations of your state of residence determine whether Nicolet may offer you a place in a course or program which you complete from your out-of-state residence.

Nicolet College participates in the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). If you reside in one of the many states who participate in SARA, Nicolet College’s programs are available to you. This allows students from NC-SARA approved states to enroll in:

  • Online degree programs, certificates, and endorsements that include internships, externships, co-ops, field experiences, student teaching, and clinical placements, and
  • Campus-based courses with out-of-state internships, externships, co-ops, field experiences, student teaching, and clinical placements.

View the list of the states participating in SARA. If you do not live in one of the states participating in the SARA program please contact Nicolet College and we will assist you in determining if Nicolet programming can be made available to you.

As a student from a SARA state you enjoy several benefits, including a complaint process through which to resolve any complaints.
