Non-SARA Application


Only distance education content originating from an eligible institution and authorized by the Rhode Island Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner and the Council on Postsecondary Education can be offered to Rhode Island residents. If your institution is located in a state that does not belong to the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (non-SARA), you can apply to offer distance education to Rhode Island residents using this form. If you are unsure whether your state belongs to SARA, please consult the SARA website.

Note that the Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner will only consider approval for non-profit institutions.
