Distance Education

Ignatius Loyola Statue

Le Moyne College (via New York State) has been approved as a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). This is an agreement among 49 member states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virigin Islands and Puerto Rico that establishes comparable standards for interstate offering of post secondary distance education.


When students participate in distance education coursework, it is Le Moyne College policy that the address submitted on their application/program approval form will be presumed to be the same as the location of the student when completing the online coursework. It is the student's responsibility to notify the college if their location while completing distance education coursework differs from that listed on the application/program approval form.


Students have a right to file a complaint or grievance via the NC-SARA Complaint Process.  Le Moyne College will ensure that all concerns and complaints of students are addressed fairly and resolved promptly.  Students complaints relating to consumer protection laws offered under the terms and conditions of SARA must first be filed with the institution to seek resolution.  If resolution is not found, the student would contact the Institution’s Home State SARA Portal Entity. The SARA State Portal Entities are listed at https://www.nc-sara.org/state-portal-entity-contacts

Additional information can be found in Section 4 of the SARA Manual.
