State Authorization Requirements

State authorization allows SLCC to offer online programs nationwide. Utah is a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), and SLCC is an approved SARA institution. SARA establishes a set of standards for offering online programs in member states and territories. SARA also protects distance-learning students and provides students with a method for filing complaints.

If you are a student living outside of Utah while you attend SLCC, the map above can help inform you if SLCC is authorized to provide distance-learning to students living in your home state. SLCC is authorized to provide distance-learning to students living in the blue states and territories marked on the map above.


As an out-of-state public institution, Salt Lake Community College is not under the purview of the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education, thus Bureau approval for SLCC Online to offer its programs to residents of California is not required. Therefore, SLCC is in compliance with California regulations concerning postsecondary distance education.

Other States or Territories

If you live in any other state or territory marked in white on the map above, please contact the state authorization coordinator. We will do our best to seek authorization and program approval, rather than deny a student access to SLCC distance learning opportunities based on a student’s location.

Complaint Process

Online students living outside of the state of Utah who have a complaint against SLCC should first file a complaint with the institution. SLCC’s student complaint process is described in the Student Code of Conduct. If SLCC does not resolve the complaint, students may file a complaint with the Utah System of Higher Education. Students can also file a complaint with their state’s enforcement authority.
