Out-of-State Online Students

Nevada State offers selected degrees that can be completed entirely online, including History, Interdisciplinary Studies, and the RN to BSN. As a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), Nevada State is authorized to offer online classes in 49 states (California is not included). For more information about SARA and state authorization, please see:

Professional Licensure

Several programs at Nevada State University lead to professional licensure. Although our membership in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) authorizes Nevada State University to teach classes in 49 states (California is not included), licensure requirements are unique to each state. For each state, the linked charts indicate whether the program meets licensure, does not meet licensure, or if the licensure status is undetermined. Notably, Nevada State University may offer online classes in these programs, but we do not currently have a fully online program that leads to licensure.

Complaint Process

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 institution’s accrediting agency or state authorization requirements under the regional SARA compact or NC-SARA.”

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