Information for Out-of-State Online Students

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) is a national initiative to provide more access to online courses while maintaining compliance standards with state regulatory agencies. SARA allows institutions to provide online courses outside of their own state borders by seeking and maintaining state approvals via a streamlined process. To learn more about SARA, please visit All states except California currently participate in SARA.

Professional Licensure

Important Note for Out of State Students: If you are considering an online academic program that leads to a professional license, it is highly recommended you contact the appropriate licensing agency where you plan to receive instruction before beginning your academic program. SARA does not provide reciprocity for state professional licensing requirements.  Academic programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by that state’s licensure requirements in order for a graduate to be eligible for a license. Please visit the Federal Licensure page to see Tyler Junior College's professional licensure disclosures.

Student Complaints

All students who are enrolled in a Tyler Junior College course who have a complaint about a course or experience should follow the college’s complaint, grievance, and appeal procedures.
