Carl Albert State College Approved for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA)
Carl Albert State College has been notified by the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) that CASC is now an institutional participant in the SARA initiative. According to CASC Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Jason Morrison, this allows online classes offered by Carl Albert State College to be accessible in almost every state in the nation. “We have been working on individual agreements with various states to have permission to offer postsecondary distance education, but through SARA, students can now take advantage of our online courses from just about anywhere. We are now in 26 SARA states and Carl Albert State College is individually authorized in all the remaining states with the exception of Alabama and Maryland. We offer high quality courses, and we are also one of the best buys anywhere when it comes to the price of our courses.” He continued, “We have worked very hard to make sure all our virtual campus courses meet the high standards required. It is exciting to now be able to offer our courses across the nation.”
Morrison stated, “In addition to our semester-long online classes, we are adding more 8-week classes to our course schedule. We truly feel what Carl Albert State College has to offer online will make a difference for a variety of students. Whether looking for a class or two to complete graduation requirements, or looking for an entire associate’s degree option online, we are taking the steps to ensure that CASC will be a viable choice for online students.”
Carl Albert State College has several 8-week classes that just started October 8, 2015. The spring semester classes, both full semester and a variety of 8-week classes, will begin January 11, 2016.
