State Authorization for Online Courses McNeese has authorization to offer distance education programs in other states. The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a voluntary agreement among member states and U.S. territories and is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state. See the current authorization status of McNeese in each state (we serve all blue states on the map). Exceptions may be available for active duty or veteran students in states that McNeese does not serve. Please contact one of our advisors to verify eligibility.
