Out of State Students

State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

Tacoma 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.

Professional Licensure

Tacoma Community College’s online courses and programs do not lead to professional licensure. 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 support@tacomacc.edu

Student Complaints

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.

Student Complaint Resolution Process

In the unlikely event you have an issue with our online instruction or student services, please contact our eLearning support services so that we can help you.  Students may also contact our accreditation agency, The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, which is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.

The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) has authority to investigate student complaints against specific schools. WSAC may not be able to investigate every student complaint. Visit Washington Student Achievement Council Student Complaint Process for information regarding the WSAC complaint process.

 Online students may file a student complaint by following the Tacoma Community College Student Complaint Process.
