Out of state students

Shoreline Community College is a member of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA).  SARA is an agreement among member states that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. SARA’s intent is  to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state.

Students from all states and the District of Columbia are welcome to apply now.

 * Shoreline Community College is not authorized to accept students located in Colorado or Florida into the Health Information Technology Curriculum. Contact eLearning Services with questions at eLearning@shoreline.edu.

Admission into a program is dependent on program availability in the state where the student is physically located at the time of acceptance. Students will not be able to register for more classes if they move to a state where Shoreline Community College does not offer programs. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the institution of a change in physical presence.

Shoreline Community College’s online courses and programs do not lead to professional licensure. Shoreline's Education online courses and programs do not lead to teacher certification for public schools. However, all of our courses and programs are fully accredited and course credits may transfer to university programs that may lead to state professional licensure. Please contact elearning staff with any questions at eLearning@shoreline.edu.

 As part of the process of gaining approval to serve out-of-state students, state and federal guidelines require us to provide information about resolving complaints about our instruction or student services.
