Winebrenner Theological Seminary is now an institutional participant in NC-SARA (State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements)! We are listed on the www.nc-sara.org website.

The National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) is the national initiative to provide more access to online courses while maintaining compliance standards with state regulatory agencies. SARA allows Winebrenner to provide online courses outside of our own state borders by seeking and maintaining state approvals via a streamlined process. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of post-secondary distance education.

This means that Winebrenner can offer its online courses to students in any of the participating states (California and Massachusetts are non-participants). While Winebrenner does not currently offer fully online programs we do offer online courses on a regular basis.

If you are interested in our online offerings please contact the admissions office (admissions@winebrenner.edu or 419-434-4220) or if you are a current student, the Student Success and Records Coordinator (kinney@winebrenner.edu or 419-434-4241).

Important Note for Students: If you are considering an online academic program that leads to a professional license, it is highly recommended you contact the appropriate licensing agency where you plan to receive instruction before beginning your academic program. NC-SARA does not provide reciprocity for state professional licensing requirements. Academic programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by that state’s licensure requirements in order for a graduate to be eligible for a license. Students may transfer online credits into a program according to their institutions guidelines.
