State Authorization

Lewis-Clark State College delivers online education programs and courses throughout Idaho and the United States, and its online offerings continue to grow.  All LCSC programs have been approved by the Idaho State Board of Education and is a member of the regional compact of Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE)

Lewis-Clark State College applied for, and was approved, to operate under the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA).  Participation in NC-SARA "is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state" (NC-SARA).  Please visit the Institutional Research & Effectiveness page for more information on state specific approved institutions and Portal Entity Agency contacts for each state.

If you have questions regarding LCSC’s participation in NC-SARA or other state authorization issues, please contact the Institutional Research & Effectiveness Director.
