The US Department of Education requires that any institution offering distance education 项目 to students outside of its home state to acquire authorization from the states in which students are located.

NC-SARA标志罗耀拉大学 新奥尔良 participates in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. The SARA – State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements initiative is a voluntary agreement among 49 成员国, the District of Columbia, 波多黎各, 和美国.S. 属维尔京群岛. The agreement establishes comparable national standards for interstate offerings of postsecondary distance education; participating colleges and universities must adhere to stringent requirements, including accreditation and remaining in good financial standing. As a SARA participating institution, Loyola is able to offer its online 项目 in SARA 成员国.

Currently, California does not participate in SARA. It also does not require out-of-state non-profit accredited institutions like Loyola to register online 项目 without a physical presence with the State.

Professional Licensure

SARA has no effect on State professional licensing requirements. Any Institution approved to participate in SARA that offers courses or 项目 designed to lead to Professional Licensure or certification or advertised as leading to Licensure must satisfy all federal requirements for disclosures regarding such Professional Licensure 项目 under 34 §C.F.R. 668.43. 另外, as a participating SARA institution, Loyola makes all reasonable attempts to determine whether a Loyola licensure track program will meet state professional licensure requirements.

The 2019 Department of Education Higher Education Rule requires that Loyola provide published professional licensure disclosures by state for all Loyola licensure track 项目 regardless of modality. 1) A list of all states for which the institution has determined its curriculum 满足 the State educational requirements for licensure or certification. 2) A list of all States for which the institution has determined that its curriculum 不符合 the State educational requirements for licensure. 3) A list of all States for which the institution has not made a determination.

The Rule also requires that Loyola make direct individual written disclosures related to professional licensure when Loyola has been able to determine that a program 不符合 the state requirements for professional licensure or certification, or when Loyola has not been able to determine whether a program will meet state licensure requirements. Loyola does this by email. 另外, we advise the student or applicant to determine whether the program 满足 requirements for Licensure in the State where the student or applicant is located.

Relocating during the course of a program to another state may impact state licensure requirements, access to practicums, and/or federal financial aid. Prior to relocation, please contact your program advisor to discuss the potential impact for your individual situation.
