State Authorization of Distance Learning Program

Notice to Prospective Distance Learning Students Officially Residing in a U.S. State of Territory Outside of Texas (and not Planning to Re-Locate to Texas).


Navarro College is currently not a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA); therefore, we are not authorized to provide distance learning courses to students whose official residence is located in a U.S. State or Territory which is outside the State of Texas.


SARA is a voluntary agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs, and is overseen by a National Council and administered by the four regional education compacts (Midwestern Higher Education Compact, New England Board of Higher Education, Southern Regional Education Board, and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education).


For a complete listing of member institutions and more information regarding this agreement, please visit the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA) website at
