The University of Northern Iowa is a participating institution in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) provide broad access to postsecondary education opportunities by establishing reciprocal state-level authorizations. SARA authorizes UNI to provide postsecondary education through distance education programs and courses to students in other states. Currently, UNI has met state authorizations for all states.
