Nevada State offers selected degrees that can be completed entirely online, including History, Interdisciplinary Studies, and the RN to BSN. As a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), Nevada State is authorized to offer online classes in all fifty states. For more information about SARA and state authorization, please see:
Several programs in our School of Education lead to professional licensure. Although our membership in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) authorizes Nevada State College to teach classes in all states, licensure requirements are unique to each state. For each state, the linked charts indicate whether the program meets licensure, does not meet licensure, or if the licensure status is undetermined. Notably, Nevada State College may offer online classes in these programs, but we do not currently have a fully online program that leads to licensure.
SARA provides a formal method for students to submit a complaint if “the postsecondary institution violated deceptive trade practices, consumer protections, or other provisions under Title 4, Chapter 14, Section 26 of the Board of Regents Handbook” or “the institution does not meet the standards established by the institution’s accrediting agency or state authorization requirements under the regional SARA compact or NC-SARA.”
All complaints must go through NSC’s internal complaint process. Upon resolution, students may choose to complete a Complaint Resolution Form, which will be directed to the SARA portal agency in Nevada.
