State Authorization

Accreditation and State Authorization

The University of South Florida is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). SACS is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

States have authority to regulate institutions offering education within their borders, including distance education. The University of South Florida is making a concerted effort to comply with all state regulations for distance education programs.

State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a national initiative to provide more access to online courses while maintaining compliance standards with state regulatory agencies. SARA allows institutions to provide online courses outside of their own state borders by seeking and maintaining state approvals via a streamlined process. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of post secondary distance education. To learn more about SARA, please visit:
http://www.fldoe.org/sara/complaint-process.stml

Florida joined SARA through the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) compact. The University of South Florida is an approved member of NC-SARA which is recognized by 49 states and the District of Columbia

Professional Licensure

Important Note for Students: If you are considering an online academic program that leads to a professional license, it is highly recommended you contact the appropriate licensing agency where you plan to reside before beginning your academic program. SARA does not provide reciprocity for state professional licensing requirements. Academic programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by that state's licensure requirements in order for a graduate to be eligible for a license. At this time, USF cannot confirm whether a particular program meets requirements for professional licensure or certification outside the state of Florida.

Disclosures and Student Complaints

Students who are enrolled in a USF course who have a complaint about a course or experience should follow the University's Student Grievance Process and State University System of Florida Board of Governors

If a student located in a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) state has a complaint about an institution operating under SARA, complaints must first go through the institution's procedure for resolution of student grievances. If a student is not satisfied with the outcome of the institutional process, the complaint may then be brought to the SARA portal agency in the institution's home state. The state SARA portal agency where the student is located may also resolve the complaint. Sara Portal Complaint page: http://www.fldoe.org/sara/complaint-process.stml

From the list of states below, please select the state where you will reside while you complete an online program at USF. Here you will find information regarding State Licensing Boards and the Student Complaint process in states other than Florida.
