National Council of State Authorization of Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA)

Pinnacle Career Institute has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements.


PCI is approved by NC-Sara to offer its distance education programs to students in other member states.  The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements, commonly known as SARA, provides a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education.  When states join SARA, they agree to follow uniform processes for approving their eligible institutions' participation.  They also agree to deal with other states' SARA institutions in a common way when those institutions carry out activities in SARA states other than their own.

SARA's policies help protect students and provide benefits to both states and institutions carrying out distance education in multiple states.  As of July 2019, 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are members of SARA.  About 1,993 colleges and universities are approved by SARA.
