State Authorization

State authorization allows accredited universities to offer academic programs to students nationwide. Ohio University has a committee working to identify state board regulations for the varying programs that we offer, and seek approvals, so you can participate in our programs wherever you are. Our committee makes every effort to ensure licensure information is current; however, licensure regulations are frequently revised.  

Ohio University is approved to offer licensure degree programs in the state of Ohio, which may also lead to license reciprocity from state-to-state. This includes all types of classroom delivery such as face-to-face, online, and hybrid programs. If you are considering a licensure program, we highly recommend that you contact the appropriate licensing agency in your state, or the state in which you plan to practice, to seek information and additional guidance before beginning the program.

National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA)

Ohio University is approved by the Ohio Department of Higher Education to Participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement.

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) establishes a state-level reciprocity process that will support the nation in its efforts to increase the educational attainment of its people by making state authorization:

  • more efficient, effective, and uniform in regard to necessary and reasonable standards of practice that could span states;
  • more effective in dealing with quality and integrity issues that have arisen in some online/ distance education offerings; and
  • less costly for states and institutions and, thereby, the students they serve.

California is the only state that has not joined SARA.

 

Institution Accreditor

Ohio University is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The Ohio Department of Higher Education has authorized the University to offer undergraduate- and graduate-level certificates, associate’s, baccalaureate, master’s, and doctorate degrees. Information on how to report a complaint related to our accreditation can be found on the HLC website.
