State Authorization and Regulatory Compliance

The State of Idaho is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and the University of Idaho is one of the approved SARA institutions in Idaho. As such, we adhere to an established common set of standards for offering post-secondary distance education among member states, districts and territories. Participation in SARA is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state.

The University of Idaho also works directly with states that are not NC-SARA members to ensure that when authorization or licensure is necessary, required approvals are secured. While we monitor the laws in each state, authorization of distance education is a dynamic environment and prospective students should check this site often for updates.

It is the student’s responsibility to understand current circumstances or special requirements in their state of residence.

Appeals Resolution Process

The University of Idaho strives to provide the highest quality educational opportunities available. However, if a conflict does arise, our efforts are meant to resolve your grievances, complaints, and concerns in an expeditious, fair, and amicable manner.

Appeals to the Institution

Students with concerns, complaints, and/or petitions have access to processes to resolve their concern(s). The university encourages informal resolution as a first step, working with faculty, programs, colleges and similar structures, depending on the nature of the concern. Academic appeals are heard in one of the following committees: Academic Petitions committee, Academic Hearing Board, and Administrative Hearing Board described in the General Requirements and Academic Procedures section of the UI Catalog.

Locate the primary contact for your college by going to College Contacts. Several appeals processes require forms, which can be downloaded from the Office of the Registrar Forms page.

Professional Licensure Information

If you are not a resident of Idaho and you are taking an online course or program leading to professional licensure, UI cannot confirm whether the course or program meets your state’s professional licensure requirements. Please verify with the appropriate licensing board in the state you intend to practice.
