In This Section

Nevada is a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) and Nevada State College is an approved SARA institution.

SARA provides a formal method for students to submit a complaint if “the postsecondary institution violated deceptive trade practices, consumer protections, or other provisions under Title 4, Chapter 14, Section 26 of the Board of Regents Handbook” or “the institution does not meet the standards established by the institutions accrediting agency or state authorization requirements under the regional SARA compact or NC-SARA.”

All complaints must go through NS’s internal complaint process. Upon completion and closure of the institutional complain, students may choose to complete a Complaint Resolution Form, which will be directed to the SARA portal agency in Nevada.
