Two new State Authorization resources

Just released:

Keep in mind that, despite letters and lawsuits, the compliance deadline remains July 1, 2011.

Current list of the key resources:

  • Russ Poulin's latest blog.
  • NACUBO summary.
  • "Dear Colleague" letter from US Department of Education, issued March 17, 2011.
  • Analysis by Russ Poulin (WCET) of Department of Education's March 17 letter.
  • Resource page maintained by WCET. This is an excellent, comprehensive site, including a detailed analysis of the regulation and a great deal of additional original material.
  • The actual State Authorization regulation from the Department of Education.
  • The Web page for WCET's "State Approval 'Starter' List", a document summarizing distance-education requirements in all states. WCET says they will no longer be updating this document, but that SHEEO (State Higher Education Executive Officers) "intends to" take on the task.
  • Lawsuit filed by Career College Association (now known as APSCU, the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities) seeking to delay implementation of regulations.
  • An Aug. 2, 2010 letter from ACE and other higher-ed associations (including EDUCAUSE) to the Department of Education expressing concern about State Authorization and a number of other new regulations.
  • A March 2, 2011 letter from ACE and others (including EDUCAUSE) focused specifically on the State Authorization issue.
