Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee join SARA distance ed agreement - University Business

Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee were approved by the Southern Regional Education Board this week to join the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA). These three bring the number of participating states to 27. SARA is a initiative of states nationwide to make distance education courses more accessible to students across state lines and make it easier for states to regulate and institutions to participate in interstate distance education. The effort is funded by a $3 million grant from Lumina Foundation, $200,000 from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and fees paid by institutions. http://www.universitybusiness.com/news/arkansas-oklahoma-and-tennessee-join-sara-distance-ed-agreement
