State Authorization makes it possible for students outside of Texas to participate in UTEP’s online courses and programs. UTEP has been approved by the State of Texas to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. Institutions that join NC-SARA are held to the national standard in each member state rather than the individual state’s regulations, thus making authorization of distance education more streamlined.
