Institutions offering distance education courses or programs must provide current and prospective students with the contact information for filing complaints with the college, its accrediting agency, and with the state agencies that handle complaints in the students’ state of residence. Nash Community College is authorized to offer online courses to students in states and territories that participate in NC-SARA, which includes all states except California and also includes Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Registration of students from other states in online courses may require additional time and information so please allow additional time for this process.
