States in which Marquette University is Authorized to Operate:
If you are not a resident of the state where your online program is based, you should ensure that the program and institution are authorized to operate in your state.
Wisconsin is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), and Marquette University is a participating institution. This means we are part of a group working together to make it easier for students to take online courses offered in other states. We are committed to complying with all states’ regulations for distance learning programs.
National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA):
SARA states are colored in blue on the map.
The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state.
Marquette University is offering online courses to all 50 states and Washington D.C. Forty-eight (48) states and D.C. operate under SARA policies and procedures (see map above).
*California is not yet a member state of SARA, but they currently do not require authorization or registration from Marquette to offer online courses or supervised field visits/externships.
