State Agencies

State Authorization

As a participant in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), Texas Wesleyan University may admit online students who live in states that are members of SARA. This is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance-education courses and programs. SARA is overseen by a national council and administered by four regional education compacts.

SARA Complaint Resolution Processes

Complaints against an institution operating under SARA must first go through the institution’s own procedures for the resolution of grievances.

If an online student is not satisfied with the outcome of the institutional process for handling complaints, the complaint (except for complaints about grades or student conduct violations) may be appealed, within two years of the incident about which the complaint is made, to:

Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
Office of General Counsel
P.O. Box 12788
Austin, Texas 78711-2788
