UWF State Authorization Status

(Current as of 06/11/18)

State Authorization Compliance

Federal and state regulations require that all institutions of higher education comply with existing state laws regarding distance learning. As these regulations continuously evolve, the University of West Florida makes every effort to maintain compliance so we can deliver as many of our fully online programs to students in as many states as possible.

State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a national initiative to provide more access to online courses while maintaining compliance standards with state regulatory agencies. SARA allows institutions to provide online courses outside of their own state borders by seeking and maintaining state approvals via a streamlined process. To learn more about SARA, please visit: nc-sara.org

NC-SARA Logo100In October 2017, the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) approved the State of Florida to join SARA. On December 14, 2017, the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) approved institutional participation for the University of West Florida. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education.

Current authorized SARA member include all states except California, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Please visit the Individual State + drop down box below for more information about any state.

Institutional Authorization and Consumer Complaints

Regulations associated with federal student financial aid program include the following requirements. "The institution must make available for review to any enrolled or prospective student upon request, a copy of the documents describing the institution's accreditation and its State, Federal, or tribal approval or licensing. The institution must also provide its students or prospective students with contact information for filing complaints with its accreditor and with its State approval or licensing entity and any other relevant State official or agency that would appropriately handle a student’s complaint." The following paragraphs and links fulfill these obligations.

Consumer and Student Complaints
UWF desires to resolve student grievances, complaints and concerns in an expeditious, fair and amicable manner. Complaints regarding any aspect of UWF operations should be filed internally to UWF authorities first and then, if necessary, to external authorities. Contact information for filing complaints is provided below:

UWF Information and Contacts for Complaints
Any student with a complaint must first go through the university complaint process. Please begin by reviewing the information in the UWF Student Handbook paying particular attention to the Student Grievance Process beginning on page 62. In additions to the Student Handbook, please review the information on the UWF Student Complaints website.

Distance Education Students
If you have completed the internal institutional grievance process and the applicable state grievance process, you may appeal non‐instructional complaints to the FL‐SARA PRDEC Council. For additional information on the complaint process, please visit the FL‐SARA Complaint Process page.

If a student located in a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) state has a complaint about an institution operating under SARA, complaints must first go through the institutions procedure for resolution of student grievances. If a student is not satisfied with the outcome of the institutional process, the complaint may then be brought to the SARA portal agency in the institution’s home state. The state SARA portal agency where the student is located may also resolve the complaint.

From the list of state below, please select the state where you will reside while you complete an online program at UWF. Here you will find information regarding State Licensing Boards and the Student Complaint process in states other than Florida.
