State Authorization for Online Education
If you are a Mississippi Delta Community College (MDCC) student or a prospective student who will not reside in Mississippi while enrolled in MDCC online classes, be aware that all U.S. states require post-secondary educational institutions to be legally authorized to provide online education courses to students in all states and territories. MDCC participates in the "National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA), an agreement among member states, districts, and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary online education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state. SARA is overseen by a National Council and administered by four regional educational compacts.”
Colleges and universities in a SARA state only need their home state authorization to offer online education to any other SARA member state. A current list of member states can be found here.
Online Education Complaint Process
For MDCC’s Out-of-State Students
MDCC seeks to resolve concerns and complaints in a fair and timely manner. Students who have a complaint may submit their concerns in accordance with the Student Complaint Process found in the MDCC Catalog/Student handbook. Complaints regarding student grades or student conduct violations are governed entirely by the MDCC policy. Students should exhaust MDCC’s internal complaint process before pursuing external options.
If a complaint cannot be resolved through the MDCC student complaint process, students may file a complaint with the Mississippi Commission on College Accreditation by visiting their site. Students may also contact the appropriate agency in their state of residency. A current list of agencies can be found here.
Note: This process is not applicable to matters related to student grades or discipline/conduct matters.
MDCC offers degree programs that can lead to an Associates of Arts degree, Associates of Applied Science degree, Career Certificate and/or Technical Certificate. Programs Offered at MDCC
MDCC also provides programs in the Health Science area that may lead to licensures and/or certifications. Students who successfully complete Health Science programs are prepared to take national and state licensing or certification exams for practice in the designated discipline in the state of Mississippi.
Through reasonable and good faith effort, research has been done to determine whether or not each program meets licensure requirements, does not meet licensure requirements, or has not yet been determined for each state. Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with Mississippi’s community colleges. These requirements, state laws, regulations, and policies can change at any time. If a program does not meet requirements or is undetermined, students should contact the Board in each state for more information. Determinations about whether the Health Science programs at MDCC meet the state education requirements for US States, Territories, and the District of Columbia can be found at the following links:
MDCC is committed to creating and maintaining a community where students, faculty, administration, and staff can work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect, functioning in one accord, with institutional policies and procedures. A student may use the procedures as outlined in the Catalog/Student Handbook for instructional and non-instructional complaints.
