STATUS OF STATE AUTHORIZATION

Coming Soon: UNF will participate in SARA 

Florida recently joined the national State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) through the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) compact. The Florida State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (FL-SARA) agency has been established to authorize and regulate Florida institutions. FL-SARA anticipates accepting applications from Florida institutions in October 2017.

 

Important Note: Until UNF has been approved as a FL-SARA participating institution, we will operate under existing guidelines as a non-SARA institution.

 

Updates on UNF’s progress toward becoming a SARA participating institution will be posted here. [updated 9/20/2017]
