Out of State Students Interested in an Online Degree from Minot State University

MSU became a SARA member in June 2014.State laws require colleges and universities to be authorized to offer online degree programs in the states where their students reside. This authorization can be obtained by seeking authorization through the individual state or by participating in a reciprocity agreement such as the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). Minot State University (MSU) became a SARA institution in June 2014, allowing MSU to offer online programs to residents in other SARA states. Below is a list of states where MSU is authorized to offer online degree programs through SARA or through individual state authorization. This applies only to students in the United States.

Licensure Programs: Authorization to offer online degree programs does not automatically imply that a program will lead to licensure or certification in a state. Please pay careful attention to the following information about specific online programs: 

  • The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice does not lead to a peace officer license. Additional credentials and education will be required to obtain a peace officer's license.
