The U.S. Department of Education regulation 600.9(c) State Authorization requires that if an institution is offering distance education in a state where it is not physically located, the institution must meet individual state requirements for offering distance or correspondence education within that state. Davidson-Davie Community College is participating in NC-SARA, National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement. As a result, Davidson-Davie Community College is authorized to offer distance education courses in states that are also participating in NCSARA. Depending on the outcome of further discussion regarding this regulation, Davidson-Davie could notify students residing in particular states that they are not eligible to register for distance education courses.
In compliance with §668.43 (b) Institutional Information, Davidson-Davie Community College is required to provide current and prospective students with information for filing complaints.
Davidson-Davie strives to resolve complaints in a fair and timely manner. Students residing outside of the State of North Carolina while attending Davidson-Davie who desire to resolve a complaint should first refer to Davidson-Davie’s General Complaint Policy.
