The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (莎拉) is an agreement among its member states, 区和U.S. territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance-education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by post-secondary institutions in a state other than the one where they reside. 莎拉 is overseen by a national council and administered by four regional higher education compacts: MHEC, NEBHE, SREB和WICHE. The four 莎拉 agreements of those compacts are collectively treated as a plural, the Agreements http://nc-sara.org/.
