The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement, or SARA, is a legislatively mandated program administered by the Commission.  The purpose of SARA is to allow resident institutions of Higher Education to join a consortium of like institutions in states nationwide, whereby those participating institutions recognize each other's accreditation, financial stability and veracity of all online distance education courses delivered by that institution, and thereby allows that institution to deliver its online coursework within the state of Wyoming without further licensure, in the same way Wyoming institutions that are members of SARA are allowed to deliver online education in those member states.
