White Mountains Community College (WMCC)  promotes online degrees and certificates strategically across the U.S. to demonstrate our values and ensure our commitment to the WMCC Educated Person Statement of Philosophy regardless of the teaching and learning modality, as best suits the interest and education of our students.

WMCC is an approved institutional participant in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). Voluntary membership in NC-SARA allows WMCC to provide distance learning to residents outside of the state of New Hampshire.

The primary goal of NC-SARA is to provide basic protections to WMCC students who live outside of New Hampshire while participating in distant/online learning coursework delivered by WMCC. 

White Mountains Community College has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement. 

Professional Licensure

Licensing requirements in N.H. may not be recognized as sufficient to obtain a license in another state. WMCC cannot determine the applicability of program requirements to satisfy licensing requirements outside N.H. Our degree and certificate programs are designed to meet the licensure requirements of licensing entities within N.H.

Addressing Concerns and Complaints

WMCC works hard to ensure your learning experience is second to none. However, if we miss that mark, the Student Handbook provides a wealth of information about WMCC policies, processes, and steps to address concerns with WMCC.

If you have a concern and it is not resolved to your satisfaction within WMCC’s internal processes, New Hampshire residents and out-of-state students residing in SARA states may choose to file a complaint with the New Hampshire Department of Education’s SARA Portal Entity.
