State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA)

New Mexico Highlands University is approved to offer educational programs in almost every state and territory in the United States through participation in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA.)

SARA requires participating colleges and universities to adhere to rigorous standards in offering online education.  NMHU’s participation is governed by the New Mexico Higher Education Department and the Western Interstate Cooperative for Higher Education (WICHE.)

Please Note:  NMHU cannot guarantee that degree programs or courses will satisfy requirements for professional licensure outside the State of New Mexico. If you intend to apply for a professional license outside New Mexico, please contact the licensing authority in that state to verify whether your selected program of study will satisfy licensure requirements.
