State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement - (SERA)

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement is an agreement among member states, districts, and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offerings of post-secondary distance education courses and programs.

Its intention is to make it easier for students to take online courses and complete field experiences offered by post-secondary institutions based on another state. Pennsylvania's SARA membership is effective January 1, 2017 and La Roche University is now a participating SARA institution. By participating in SARA, La Roche is able to operate in every SARA state. The SARA Map identifies other participating states and districts.

A few states are not participating members of SARA. Information on these states can be found on this list which is current as of January 3, 2017. If you have any questions regarding state authorization, please contact Erin Pottgen at Please note that SARA does not address professional licensure issues.

Professional Licensures

La Roche College is approved to offer programs that may lead to licensure/certification in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. La Roche cannot confirm that our programs meet the requirements for licensure/certification in any other state or commonwealth.
