Out-of-State Online Students
Triton College participates in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), such arrangement authorizes the State of Illinois to take part in a system of interstate reciprocity that establishes national standards on distance education. Out-of-state students interested in enrolling in any of Triton College’s online programs must reside in states that are part of the SARA agreement.

If after following the college procedure the issue cannot be resolved internally and the student seeks additional resolution, students can refer to the contacts below for the appropriate state agency or accrediting body and may contact the Illinois Community College Board.

Students who have concerns involving harassment or discrimination should see specific procedures listed in the Triton College Board Policy Manual and the Student Handbook.
