State Authorization of Online Programs

Colleges and universities are required to obtain authorization to offer educational activities in states where they are not physically located.

The state of Indiana, along with IPFW, are members of the National Council for State Authorization for Reciprocity Agreements (SARA).

  • The Higher Learning Commission approves and regulates IPFW’s programs in Indiana, where IPFW is physically located and in which it has legal authorization to operate.
