Massachusetts and Puerto Rico have officially joined the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). NC-SARA simplifies the process of obtaining state authorization for colleges and universities to offer online education across the country. Massachusetts became the 49th state to join the agreement last month, as did U.S. Territory Puerto Rico. California is now the only state not participating in NC-SARA which serves nearly 1800 institutions nationwide and beyond.
Massachusetts will begin accepting applications from its NC-SARA-eligible institutions on Monday, June 18.; Puerto Rico will begin accepting applications from its institutions later this summer
