In addition to these accreditations, Alverno College is a member of National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). SARA establishes reciprocity across state lines that can benefit students studying in online programs. Alverno College has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements.
As a participating institution, Alverno College is part of a group of institutions committed to making it easier for students to take online courses offered in other states. Because we are a participating institution, students who are residents in other NC-SARA approved states can enroll in:
- Online degree programs, certificates, and other educational activities such as internships, externships, co-ops, field experiences, student teaching, and clinical placements, and
- Campus-based courses with out-of-state internships, externships, co-ops, field experiences, student teaching, and clinical placements.
- If you are an online student and are not a resident of the state in which your online program is based, you should verify that your program and institution are authorized to operate in your state. Check this map to learn more about your state’s participation.
If an educational program is designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation, or is advertised as meeting such requirements, Alverno College has determined requirements have been met for licensure in the State of Wisconsin. At this time, Alverno College has not made determinations about any other state’s requirements.
We are committed to complying with all states’ regulations for distance learning programs.
