CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is joining a national effort to make education more accessible to college students across state lines.

The New England Board of Higher Education recently voted to make New Hampshire the first state in New England and the 18th nationally to join the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement, which is aimed at making it easier for students to take online courses offered by schools in other states.

The agreement allows institutions accredited in their own states operate in other participating states without seeking independent authorization.

Edward MacKay of the New Hampshire Higher Education Commission says the state’s college and university presidents overwhelmingly support the idea. The next step is for interested institutions to seek approval to participate. They can start applying in January.
