NC-SARA has worked with the SARA State Portal Entities (SPEs) and regional compacts to create the Professional Licensure Directory, which provides contact information for five programs that lead to a professional license:
- Social work
- Teacher Education
This directory does not contain specific information regarding regulations or requirements, but rather provides general contact information. NC-SARA updates this directory twice annually.

Valdosta State University is committed to providing the best student experience and we strive to provide student policies and procedures that are reasonable, fairly administered, and well-publicized. Our Student Concerns and Complaints/Grievances page provides details about the student complaint and grievance process and procedures.
Should the situation arise, students have the right to file a complaint concerning SARA-related regulations of online degree and certificate programs. Below, review the process for filing that complaint as well as specific contact information for each state.
*Note: Student complaints about grades or student conduct may not be appealed to the portal agency. Additionally, home state portal agencies report the status of complaint(s) to NC-SARA on a quarterly basis.
