State regulations require authorization for post-secondary institutions to offer distance education degrees, certificates, and courses, to students who live outside the institution’s home state.

UMA is approved by the Maine Department of Higher Education to participate in SARA.  Participation in this agreement means that courses and programs are available to students who reside in the blue colored states.
