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. Please pay careful attention to the programs available in your state. This applies only to students in the United States.

Note about Licensure Programs:

  • The BSN Completion admits individuals who have a current unencumbered registered nurse license in their state of residence. Therefore, the BSN Completion Program does NOT lead to a professional licensure in your state of residence.
  • The Master of Science in Special Education fulfills licensing requirements in the State of North Dakota and North Dakota is part of the National Association of Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate agreement. If you plan to seek licensure in your state of residence, it is your responsibility to contact your state’s licensure board to determine if this program will meet their requirements. A listing of licensing agencies by state can be found on the NASDTEC web site. The Special Education department can work with students on an individual basis to fulfill licensing requirements.

MSU has chosen not to seek authorization to offer field experience activities such as practicums, internships, or clinicals in Puerto Rico. The online programs that include field and experience activities are: the Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Services with a major in Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and Associate of Science Degree in Human Services with a major in Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities. If you choose the Certificate of Completion in Developmental Disabilities, you cannot take the practicum but must choose your coursework from the other options. Residents of Puerto Rico should consult the program coordinator before applying to the program to see if alternative arrangements can be made. This decision does not affect Puerto Rico residents who are seeking enrollment in other degree/certificate programs or who may be taking an isolated course.
