State Authorization

Arkansas is a participant in the Southern Regional Education Board’s (SREB) Electronic Campus Regional Reciprocity Agreement (SECRRA), which means that students in SREB states can participate in online courses and programs that are listed on the SREB Electronic Campus site.  Recently, the state of Arkansas became a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and UCA has become a participating NC-SARA institution. This extended UCA’s reach to include the 28 participating NC-SARA states as well.

UCA is currently authorized to offer online courses in 39 states (highlighted in green). Additionally, three states (highlighted in orange) have passed legislation to become members of NC-SARA. However, those states must submit applications to NC-SARA and be accepted into the council in order for UCA to offer courses in those locations. UCA is not currently authorized to offer online courses or degrees in the eight states highlighted in red.
