Welcome to the Alabama State Portal Entity (SPE) website. As an Alabama institution with a main (primary) campus physically located in Alabama, your institution may be eligible to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA).

To be considered by NC-SARA, we recommend that you review the NC-SARA website or simply Google NC-SARA for more information. This information is to ensure that your institution is accredited by a Department of Education recognized accrediting body, provides assurances of financial stability, and maintains a student complaint process comparable to the onsite process available to resident students.

Please send all required materials to the attention of Ron Leonard using one of the following addresses:
