Update on the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement

Sunday, Aug. 10, 9-10:30 a.m.


The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement is intended to broaden the availability of—and access to—accredited online degree programs by reducing state regulatory barriers while ensuring strong consumer safeguards. The agreement is finalized and states are starting to participate. This session will provide an update on progress of the agreement, as well as a discussion about what your state needs to do to become a member.
