Striving to make online easier for more students
The University of Akron has been approved by Ohio to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is an agreement among member states that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering 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.
