National Council - State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA) Complaint Resolution


New Hampshire has been accepted as part of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) through the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE). SARA is overseen by the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and administered by four regional education compacts, with the New England Board of Higher Education being the regional entity for New Hampshire. The SARA is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offerings 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.

The New Hampshire Department of Education, Division of Higher Education – Higher Education Commission is the New Hampshire portal agency for SARA and has the authority and responsibility to resolve student and other complaints.
