Distance Learning and State Authorization
Cowley College obtained exemption or authorization for all of our online programs in all 50 states and three additional territories.
If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be legally offering distance or correspondence education in that State.
Cowley College has been accepted as an institutional participant in the SARA initiative through the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR).
Kansas was approved by the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) on November 16, 2014, to join the Midwestern State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (M-SARA).
“SARA is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offerings of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state. SARA is overseen by a National Council and administered by four regional education compacts.”
Cowley College is accepting students from all fifty states:
-DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
-TEXAS (Cowley College is “not regulated in Texas under Chapter 132 of the Texas Education Code.”)
-U.S. VIRGIN iSLANDS
