EWU currently offers educational opportunities to students in multiple state jurisdictions through distance education. Due to the state authorization initiative, all universities offering education outside of their home state must be authorized by each state in which they offer education at a distance. EWU is monitoring developments in state laws in every state.
Eastern Washington University (EWU) participated in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). This authorizes EWU to provide distance education activities to other member states and territories. As of January 1, 2021, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and all states with the exception of California are members of NC-SARA. Students who are located in the state of California can participate in EWU’s offerings.
