ED Provides Q&As on State Authorization
August 8, 2012
On July 27, the Department of Education published a Dear Colleague letter (GEN-12-13) with more details on what institutions must do to comply with state authorization requirements. Despite the recent court action vacating the ED regulation pertaining to state authorization for distance education, the letter notes that institutions remain responsible for complying with all state laws relating to distance education.
The letter answers questions on:
- When an institution needs to submit updated information about its state authorization to ED.
- Locations at which less than 50 percent of any program is offered.
- Consortia agreements with institutions in other states.
- Student complaints and consumer information.
The State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) has surveyed the states to collect the information that institutions need to comply with the state authorization requirements and understand the various state requirements for out-of-state schools.
