Distance Education

NOTICE: State Authorization of Distance Education and Clinical Placement

Students enrolling in a distance education program who are not residing in Arkansas as well as students who are going to a state other than Arkansas for clinical experience must have prior approval from that state’s higher education agency. Federal Program Integrity standards require UAMS to gain this approval. Fortunately, Arkansas along with many other states have joined the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA). Members of the SARA provide automatic approval to other member states to “operate” in that state.  More information on state authorization for distance education to include out-of-state clinical placement of students can be found at

Should you have any questions regarding state authorization or the SARA, please contact Dr. Susan Long, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at (501)686-5730 or at
