Navajo Technical University

Crownpoint, New Mexico – Distance education programs offered by Navajo Technical University (NTU) are now featured in SARA Source, a searchable catalog designed to make it easy for students to identify quality distance learning opportunities in their preferred fields of study.

“As a participant in SARA, NTU is committed to upholding high standards of student consumer protection and quality, particularly when offering distance education programs to students,” said Dr. Arviso. “Students who utilize the SARA Source not only have access to an easy-to-use database of distance education courses available here at NTU as well as from institutions nationwide, but they can also be confident that the programs they’re considering are all offered by accredited institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. We’re excited to have our programs in this terrific resource and hope it serves many students well.”

SARA stands for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements, which help streamline regulations for distance education programs – and also include important consumer protections to support interstate distance education students. All programs and institutions included in SARA Source are members of SARA. Learn more about SARA and why it matters.

When browsing SARA Source, prospective students will be able to use the search filters to narrow their choices, select multiple programs for comparison, and easily print or e-mail results to share with others. Additionally, SARA Source users can easily view institution contact information to make direct inquiries about their programs of interest.

Lori Williams, Ph.D., president and CEO of the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) said, “We wanted to establish SARA Source to make things easier for students who are searching for quality distance education programs. There are a lot of resources out there that can create confusion for prospective students; the SARA Source is designed to serve as a one-stop-shop for those interested in exploring interstate distance education opportunities from institutions that participate in SARA. We hope SARA Source will become a preferred source of information about distance education programs offered by SARA-participating institutions for students around the country.”
