Wisconsin is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA). 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.
We are committed to complying with all states’ regulations for distance learning programs.
