State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) - States require Washburn University be authorized to deliver distance and online education to their residents. Washburn University is a participant in the SARA initiative, which is a state-level reciprocity process aimed at making the effort to obtain state authorizations more efficient for institutions and to make it easier for students to enroll in distance education programs outside of the states in which they reside. Institutions that are members of SARA are authorized to provide online education to students from all SARA member states.
