State Authorization of Distance Programs


Pacific University has been approved by the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. Out-of-state distance students from non-member states may follow this link (http://www.sheeo.org/projects/state-authorization-postsecondary-education) for information about filing consumer complaints with their state authorizing agency.

Pacific University has been granted authorizations, exemptions, and waivers and is not otherwise required to seek authorization for all states and territories. However, distance students residing in certain states may be ineligible to apply for programs with required internship components and current distance students who wish to participate in internships may face restrictions. Prospective students should contact program directors with questions. If you are a current student, check with your faculty advisor before arranging an internship for credit in another state.
