Distance Education State Authorization

State Authorization

State Authorization is the Federal regulation that higher education institutions must obtain a state's authorization to offer distance learning courses and programs to students living in a state in which the University is not physically located, i.e. out-of-state students.

As a participant in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), WT may admit students who live in states that are members of NC-SARA.  The member states and participating institutions are listed on the NC-SARA website.

If you are a student living in a state that is not a member of NC-SARA, WT may have a direct agreement with your state.  For more information, please call James Andrews, Director for External Programming, at (806) 651-2701 or email jandrews@wtamu.edu.
