State Authorization Requirements

Special rules apply to online courses offered to students living in other states.

If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be legally offering postsecondary distance or correspondence education in that State. (Chapter 34, § 600.9 State authorization, HIGHER EDUCATION ACT OF 1965, AS AMENDED)

“The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a new initiative designed to safeguard distance-learning students and provide them with greater access to online courses, as well as to protect state and institutional interests.”

Utah has been approved as a SARA state, and Salt Lake Community College is a SARA institution. SLCC is thereby authorized to provide distance educational offerings outside of the state of Utah.

Distance education students living outside of the state of Utah who have a complaint against SLCC should first file a complaint with the institution. If SLCC does not resolve the complaint, students may file a complaint with the Utah Board of Regents. The Board of Regents will only consider complaints that were previously unresolved by the institution and may refer a complaint to another agency for investigation.

To file a complaint against a UT SARA institution, you must:

  • File within two years of the date of the incident;
  • First file and follow through with the institution’s complaint process. If the complaint is not resolved after going through the institutional complaint process, students may file with UT SARA.
  • Address a complaint that the institution violated a standard or regulation of the terms of SARA; and
  • Be a student at a UT SARA institution:
  • Utah students may not use UT SARA to complain about distance education courses offered by a Utah institution, only distance education courses offered by a postsecondary institution in another state.
  • Students outside Utah involved with distance and correspondence education from a UT SARA institution may file a complaint with UT SARA. They can also file a complaint with their state’s enforcement authority.

Once a complaint is filed, UT SARA will conduct a review within five business days. If the complaint fits within the SARA jurisdiction, investigation and follow up will take place. If the complaint does not fall under the SARA jurisdiction, it may be referred to another entity for investigation and follow up.
