Consumer Protection Information


As of June 30, 2016, the University of Missouri-Kansas City is a participant in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education, aimed at making the effort to obtain state authorizations more efficient for institutions and to make it easier for students to enroll in distance education programs outside of the states in which they reside.

For more information about the SARA initiative and progress of state and institutional membership, please visit www.nc-sara.org/sara-states-institutions

The Missouri Kansas State Authorization Network (MoKanSAN) provides collaborative opportunities for higher education institutions.
