Loss of Eligibility or Withdrawal

  • Institutions previously approved by their state as SARA participating institutions are eligible for annual renewal;
  • Institutions are alerted multiple times by NC-SARA (via e-mail) to begin the renewal process.
  • The SARA member state reviews the institution’s renewal application and takes one of four actions: a) approves the Institution’s renewal application; b) approves the Institution’s renewal application on Provisional Status (see Sections 3.2 and 3.3 of the SARA Manual);  c) returns the institution’s application for additional data/information; d) denies the institution’s renewal application.
  • Upon approval of a renewal application, the institution pays its renewal fee to NC-SARA and, if required, to its SARA member state.
  • Delays in payments to NC-SARA result in late fees and potential loss of participation.
  • Renewals on Provisional Status may carry additional institutional obligations or limitations.

Detailed information about the loss of institutional eligibility or withdrawal under SARA is in the SARA Manual, Section 3.7.
