School of Education Licensure Information: State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

Mandatory Professional Licensure Disclosure

New Mexico Highlands University (NMHU) offers multiple programs leading to professional licensure or certification within the State of New Mexico and may also meet the requirements in other states.

Beginning July 1, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education requires institutions to provide information about their programs that lead to licensure or certification. Specifically, whether a program meets, does not meet, or has not yet been determined if it meets, licensure/certification requirements in all the U.S. states and territories. The professional licensure information is provided in accordance with U.S. Federal Regulations, 34 CFR § 668.50 (2016 Rules)34 CFR § 668.43 (2019 Rules), and NMHU’s membership in the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA).

This Disclosure is strictly limited to the NMHU’s determination of whether its initial teacher licensure or counseling programs, that if successfully completed, would be sufficient to meet the licensure or certification requirements in each state and territory.  Please note NMHU cannot provide verification of an individual’s ability to meet licensure or certification requirements unrelated to its educational programming.  Such individual determinations are made by state licensing boards and are fact-specific determinations.

This disclosure does not provide any guarantee that any particular state licensure or certification entity will approve or deny your application. Furthermore, this disclosure does not account for changes in state law or regulation that may affect your application for licensure and occur after this disclosure has been made. NMHU has designed educational programs in counseling and teacher education and has made no determination that the licensure curricula is insufficient to meet the licensure and certification requirements for initial teaching certification in any of the 50 states and territories.

Enrolled students and prospective students are strongly encouraged to contact their state’s licensure entity using the links provided below to review all licensure and certification requirements imposed by their state(s) of choice as THEY CAN CHANGE AT ANY TIME and as New Mexico DOES NOT PARTICIPATE in the NASDTEC Interstate Agreement (Patrick I have attached the document to link to NASDTEC for 2022).

Please note:

  • NMHU Counseling Programs are Nationally accredited by CACREP which may impact reciprocity.
  • NMHU Teacher Preparation Programs are nationally accredited CAEP which may impact reciprocity.
  • The NASDTEC Interstate Agreement publishes annual updates on state licensure information.
