Alabama Moves to Improve Online College Access

by Jim Cook, Dothan Eagle

Alabama colleges and universities will soon have an easier way to offer their courses to other states online and out-of-state institutions will have the same opportunity to offer online course here thanks to Alabama’s participation in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement. Currently, to offer distance education courses in Alabama, colleges and universities must gain approval from the Alabama Commission on Higher Education. Now that Alabama is a member of SARA, schools in participating states that have been approved by their state’s equivalent to ACHE will be able to offer online courses in Alabama. Colleges and universities in Alabama approved by ACHE will be able to offer classes in participating states without having to go through those states’ approval processes.
