National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA)

NC SARA

Iowa Lakes Community College has been approved by the state of Iowa to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA).

NC-SARA is an agreement among member states that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. The agreement makes it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state.

Student complaints concerning online courses and programs that Iowa Lakes Community College has not resolved may appeal to the Iowa College Student Aid Commission by calling 877-272-4456 or by submitting a complaint form on the Iowa College Aid website. Complete the complaint form online.
