Join NC-SARA for a presentation about the value of SARA (State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements), including the significant cost savings that participating institutions can realize through their SARA participation. We will summarize the findings of a recent national cost savings study completed by the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS). During the session we will also demonstrate a cost savings calculator that institutions can use to estimate their own cost savings based on current or planned interstate distance education enrollment information, and share the additional benefits of SARA for states, institutions, and students. Representatives from SARA participating institutions will discuss how SARA participation has saved them time and resources, while also expanding access to quality distance education programs for students nationwide. Make sure to register for this informational presentation about how SARA is a game changer for participating institutions!
