Ramon Ryan
Class of 2021
Being nervous about returning to school as a working adult, I wanted the flexibility to do some coursework online, along with the ability to take certain classes in person that felt out of my comfort zone. While I came for the flexibility, I stayed for the quality of the education.

Nashville State SARA Agreement

Nashville State is a part of the SARA Agreement, which aims to help expand students’ access to educational opportunities and ensure more efficient, consistent, and effective regulation of distance education programs.

Complaint Resolution Policies and Procedures for Non-Tennessee Resident Students in State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement States, commonly known as SARA. Student complaints relating to consumer protection laws that involve distance learning education offered under the terms and conditions of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), must first be filed with the institution to seek resolution.

Complainants not satisfied with the outcome of the Institution’s internal process may appeal, within two years of the incident about which the complaint is made, to the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. 

For purposes of this process, a complaint shall be defined as a formal assertion in writing that the terms of SARA or the laws, standards, or regulations incorporated by the SARA Policies and Standards have been violated by the institution operating under the terms of SARA. 

For a list of SARA member States, please visit the NC-SARA website. Students residing in non-SARA states should consult their respective state of residence for further instruction for filing a complaint. 

For more student information about Nashville State, refer to the policies and procedures in the current Student Policy Handbook.
