The Odd State Out

California will soon be the only state not joining an agreement that helps colleges offer online education across state lines. Consumer advocates there, concerned about for-profit colleges, hope it will stay that way.¬†When the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement was established in 2013, few would have imagined that just five years later, almost every state in the U.S. would be involved.¬†Despite initial opposition, Massachusetts is expected to become the 49th state to join the agreement later this year. If that happens, California will be the only state that is not a member of SARA — a regulatory framework that makes it simpler for colleges and universities to gain state-level approval to offer online education across the U.S.
