The South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR), on behalf of the State of South Dakota, has entered into an agreement to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and Mount Marty University is an institutional member of SARA. As a member, Mount Marty University is authorized to deliver online education and perform certain educational activities in each of the member states of the reciprocity agreement.
Professional Licensure or Certification
SARA does not address professional licensing requirements for programs leading to state licensing or certification. Educational programs leading to professional licensure may require additional approval from separate state licensing boards. Mount Marty University programs leading to professional licensure or certification meet certain academic requirements and are intended to prepare students for potential professional licensure or certification in South Dakota. MMU programs may not meet the educational requirements for professional licensure or certification in other states. Students or prospective students interested in educational programs leading to professional licensure or certification need to be aware of relevant policies and information and should contact the appropriate academic department. Prior to beginning an academic program, students planning to apply for professional licensure or certification in a state other than South Dakota are highly encouraged to contact the appropriate state licensing agency for information and guidance regarding professional licensure or certification requirements. Disclosure information concerning MMU's curriculum and each state's professional licensure requirements and contact information is provided below.
