STATE AUTHORIZATION: STATE-BY-STATE SUMMARYMichigan State University (MSU) is obligated to comply with other states’ laws regarding the delivery of distance education. For purposes of this summary, distance education includes any traditional, online, and hybridprogram or course involving instruction given, in whole or in part, outside the state of Michigan. State laws regarding distance education vary state-by-state, and even program-by-program within a state. Consequently,compliance with state authorization requirements is an ongoing process.Traditional Courses - Regulations also vary state-by-state with respect to traditional courses that take place outside the state of Michigan (internship, externship, clerkship, practicum, rotation, clinical, independent study,study away, mentoring, advising, proctoring and the like) and may not necessarily be the same as regulations regarding online distance education outline in the following chart.Residency – Course and program availability varies by state. Admission into a program is granted at the time of initial acceptance into the program and is dependent on program availability in the state where the student isphysically located at the time of admission. If a student moves to a different state after admission to the program, continuation within the program will depend on the availability of the program within the new state wherethe student is physically present. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the institution of a change in physical presence. Whether military personnel stationed outside the state of Michigan may enroll or continue in aMSU distance education program or not is based on where military personnel are stationed.State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) - On September 11, 2015, MSU became an official member of the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and beganparticipating in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA). A “State authorization reciprocity agreement” is an agreement between two or more States that authorizes an institution located andlegally authorized in a State covered by the agreement to provide postsecondary education through distance education or correspondence courses to students in other States covered by the agreement.Out-of-State Educational/Field Experience1 - Courses and programs incorporating a “supervised field experience” are covered by the provisions of SARA. Under SARA a “supervised field experience” means a student learningexperience under the oversight of a supervisor, mentor, faculty member or other qualified professional, located in the host state, who has a direct or indirect reporting responsibility to the institution where the student isenrolled, whether or not credit is granted. Examples include practica, student teaching, or internships. However, see below regarding programs for licensed professions.Program Directors and Program Coordinators: Please contact MSU’s State Authorization Distance Learning Coordinator for clarification prior to approving an out-of-state educational/field experience.Professional Licensure Issues – SARA has no effect on state professional licensing requirements. Distance education programs in nursing, education, social work, counseling, allied health professions, veterinary medicine,etc., may require additional approval from separate licensing boards, depending on the state. Students that reside outside the state of Michigan who are considering a professional program should contact the appropriateBoard in their state of residency prior to beginning a course of study. MSU cannot confirm whether the course or program meets requirements for professional licensure in the student’s state of residence.Participating SARA U.S. States and Territories Are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky,Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma,Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.For States Not Participating in SARA - Michigan State University is required to comply with that states’ laws regarding distance education. The chart on the following pages provides a summary of each state’s requirementsto offer distance education to its residents, an overview of the state’s physical presence triggers, and other relevant information for offering distance education in the state. The chart also identifies whether MSU is authorizedto offer only 100% online programs to residents of the state or whether some programs may also offer a field experience component. Non-Participating SARA state: California.SARA Physical Presence Standard:Generally, an institution has physical presence when it operates a campus, branch instructional facility whether leased or owned, or administrative office within the boundaries of a state. However, because the specificdefinitions of physical presence currently vary greatly from state to state, especially with regard to out-of-state institutions that seek to conduct any activity within another state, SARA has established its own uniformstandard for physical presence vs. distance education. For purposes of participation in SARA, this standard applies, but it does not affect the application of existing state laws to colleges that choose to operate outside ofSARA or which are based in states that are not SARA members.For purposes of SARA, an institution has physical presence and therefore must meet the state’s current non-SARA requirements if it does any of these things in a state:a. Establishes a physical location for students to receive synchronous or asynchronous instructionb. Requires students to physically meet in a location for instructional purposes more than twice per full-term (quarter or semester) course for a total of more than six hoursc. Establishes an administrative officed. Provides information to students for the purpose of enrolling students, or provides student support services, from a physical site operated by or on behalf of the institution in the statee. Offers a “short course” that requires more than 20 contact hoursf. Provides office space to instructional or non-instructional staffg. Maintains a mailing address or phone exchange in a state.1Out of State Educational/Field Experience refers to an internship, externship, clerkship, practicum, rotation, clinical, student teaching, independent study, study away, mentoring, advising, proctoring and the like.Current as of June 12, 2018

An institution does not have physical presence and is therefore covered by SARA in SARA member states, if it is only:a. Offering courses to individuals via distance education in ways that do not require students to gather physically in groups, excepting the special provisions in Section 6(1);b. Advertising to students whether through print, billboard, direct mail, internet, radio, television or other medium;c. Offering distance education courses on a military base if enrollment in such courses is limited to federal employees and family members;d. Maintaining a server, router or similar electronic service device housed in a facility that otherwise would not constitute physical presence (the presence of a server or similar pass-through switching device does not byitself constitute the offering of a course or program in that state)e. Having faculty, adjunct faculty, mentors, tutors, or other academic personnel residing in a member state (the presence of instructional faculty in a state, when those faculty teach entirely via distance-education andnever meet their students in person, does not establish physical presence for purposes of this agreement)f. Holding proctored exams on behalf of the institution in the host stateg. Having contractual arrangements in the home or host state.h. Offering educational field experiences for students, including an educational field trip arranged for a group of students that are normally in residence at an institution in another statei. Operating limited supervised field experiences. For purposes of this agreement, interstate supervised field experiences originating from campus-based programs in a member state are considered to be distanceeducation and not to establish physical presence if they:a.place fewer than ten students from each program in a member state who are physically present simultaneously at a single facility or site in a host state, andb. do not involve any multi-year contract between a sending institution and a field site.State and ProgramOfferingsALABAMANC-SARA MEMBER STATE(Approved January 1, 2016)Required State AuthorizationPhysical Presence TriggersAs a participating National Council for StateAuthorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA)member since September 11, 2015, MichiganState University is authorized to offer onlinedistance to persons residing in Alabama inaccordance with NC-SARA established policies andstandards; program exceptions have been noted.For purposes of SARA, an institution has physical presence andtherefore must meet the state’s current non-SARA requirements ifit does any of the following:a.Establishes a physical location for students to receivesynchronous or asynchronous instruction;b.Requires students to physically meet in a location forinstructional purposes more than twice per full-term (quarteror semester) course for a total of more than six hours;c.Establishes an administrative office;d.Provides information to students for the purpose of enrollingstudents, or provides student support services, from aphysical site operated by or on behalf of the institution in thestate;e.Offers a “short course” that requires more than 20 contacthoursf.Provides office space to instructional or non-instructionalstaff;g.Maintains a mailing address or phone exchange in a state.A “State authorization reciprocity agreement”(SARA) is an agreement between two or moreStates that authorizes an institution located andlegally authorized in a State covered by theagreement to provide postsecondary educationthrough distance education or correspondencecourses to students in other States covered bythe agreement.Physical presence under SARA is not triggered if the instructionprovided for a short course or seminar takes no more than 20classroom hours.
