Advising & Registration Session

State Authorization

Houston Community College is now a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA).  This means that HCC can offer online courses to residents in all states that are also SARA members.  Individual colleges must also be SARA members. Kentucky, Utah, and Wisconsin are not SARA members, so HCCS does not have permission to offer online classes to residents in those states. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Please be advised that certain online programs, which include internships, practicums, or other experiential requirements, may trigger addtional State Authorization requirements. Check with the appropriate licensing or professional organization before you enroll in these types of programs to be sure that the HCC course credits will be accepted.

‌To learn more about state authorization for online students, visit the Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET) web site.  and the NC-SARA website. For more information about student complaint resolution, check the "About US" category on this website.
