State Authorization Reciprocity (SAR) Agreements
Due to restrictive state regulations, Florida A&M University (FAMU) is not permitted to provide online courses or instruction to students from some states. If you reside in a restricted state, you may not be permitted to enroll in or be admitted to a FAMU online program. Please contact your state’s higher education regulation authorities for more details.
Effective January 2018, Florida A&M University has been approved by Florida to participate in National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. The reciprocity agreements allows for the open delivery of academic credit-earning activities in participating states, including academic field experiences such as internships or practicums. Below are the Online Master Degree Programs offered at Florida A&M University and information on whether FAMU is authorized to offer these degree programs to residents of other states.
