State Authorization for Distance Learning

State Authorization for Distance Learning

Educational activity can only occur in a state once Lindenwood University complies with each state's regulations. Only then can Lindenwood offer students a place in a course or program.  

Lindenwood participates in the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). This allows students from NC-SARA approved states to enroll in online degree programs and campus-based courses.

Members of SARA are highlighted in blue on the NC-SARA map (below, as of December 2020.)
