SARA Learning Station

SARA Learning Station


The SARA Learning Station is your one-stop shop to access NC-SARA's resources for learning about SARA. Learning resources for institutions have been developed in collaboration with our Regional Compact partners and SARA State Portal Entities. Institutions should always check with their SARA State Portal Entity for any state-specific requirements.

SARA Quick Start Guides

When institutions participate in SARA, they agree to a set of compliance requirements as detailed in the SARA Policy Manual. SARA Quick Start Guides are intended to help institutions easily understand SARA requirements to help them maintain compliance, communicate with colleagues regarding SARA, and explain SARA to students and other stakeholders.
