State Authorization for Distance Education

Southeastern Free Will Baptist College offers distance education in accordance with the regulations of the United States Department of Education and the regulations of each state or territory.

The National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA) is a voluntary agreement among its member states and U.S. territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of post-secondary distance-education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by post-secondary institutions based in another state.

Southeastern Free Will Baptist College participates in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements.
