State Authorization & Professional Licensing


The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement, or SARA, does not deal with professional licensing board approval for programs leading to state licensing in the fields of Cosmetology, EDT, etc. Therefore, Rockingham Community College (RCC) cannot confirm whether courses or programs offered meet licensure requirements in a student’s state of residence outside of North Carolina.

RCC students enrolled in an online course or program leading to professional licensure should check with the licensing board in their state to confirm that the course or program meets the requirement for licensure.
