Department of Education Seeks Input on State Authorization Rule Delay

May 25, 2018

As we notified you of a few weeks ago, the Department of Education is seeking to delay the implementation of regulations relating to State authorization that are to go into effect June 1 of this year. The main reasons for the delay were concerns around disclosure issues and student residence for distance education programs and how those students and institutions may interact with states during a complaint process. The Department has asked for input on this delay, and has provided a deadline of June 11th for input.
