Reciprocity Report, September 11 Commission Meeting

STATE AUTHORIZATION RECIPROCITY AGREEMENT

Indiana is the first state in the country to join an interstate initiative designed to ensure academic quality and increase affordability for Hoosier students who complete online courses offered by colleges in other states.

Launched by the National Council for State Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), the initiative will streamline the regulatory process required for colleges to enroll college students across state lines. More than twenty states are expected to be signed on by the end of 2014.

“Indiana is embracing new pathways that offer Hoosier college students more options and greater flexibility in completing education beyond high school,” said Teresa Lubbers, Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education. “It is imperative that these options are aligned with our state’s quality standards, and NC-SARA promotes consumer protection and reduces regulatory burdens and costs.”
