State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA)

Online Courses are an important part the educational mission of Kansas City Kansas Community College (KCKCC).  Kansas City Kansas Community College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, a commission of the North Central Association and the Kansas Board of Regents. However, not all of our online students are residents of Kansas and we must comply with the rules and regulations of their home states higher education governing bodies in order to offer courses in those states.  To facilitate this process, KCKCC has joined, through the Kansas Board of Regents, the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). This agreement allows KCKCC authorization to provide classes in any member state. This also means that while we can offer our online education opportunities to most students, some states do not qualify and residents in non SARA member states will not be allowed participate in our online programs and  course offerings.  See the map below to see if your state is eligible or click the following link
