State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

Hawaii is approved to be a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA).

SARA is an agreement among member states, districts and 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.

For more information about SARA, please visit:

Hawaii’s authorized schools can review the Hawaii SARA policies here and the fee schedule here.
The membership participation form is available here*.
