State Authorization

Pikes Peak State College is a member of National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), which means we share a reciprocity agreement with all states who are part of the NC-SARA group. The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state. SARA is overseen by a National Council and administered by four regional education compacts. Pikes Peak State College has been approved by the State of Colorado 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.

Pikes Peak State College offers online courses and programs to a wide array of learners across the nation and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. If you plan on taking PPSC Online Campus classes, please check the NC-SARA Map to verify that your state has either authorized or exempted our college to offer classes or programs to you as a resident of your state. Please visit the Program Licensing Disclosure|NC-SARA page for more information.
