Wallace State Community College seeks to deliver all of our online programs in every state. We work through the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) process and with states directly to ensure that when authorization or licensure is necessary, required approvals are secured.WSCC has been approved by Alabama to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. As such, we adhere to an established common set of standards for offering post-secondary distance education among member states, districts and territories. Participation in NC-SARA is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state. While we do monitor the laws in each state, authorization of distance education is a dynamic environment and prospective students should check this site often for updates. Wallace State Community College is currently authorized, licensed, registered, exempt or not subject to approval in all states, with the exceptions noted below in the state-by-state list.
It is the student’s responsibility to understand current circumstances or special requirements in their state of residence.
