Department of Education, 4/20/11


This letter clarifies the Department's approach to enforcing the requirement that distance learning programs have state authorization in the state where the student lives in order to maintain Title IV eligibility. APSCU and other organizations requested a delay in implementing this rule for a variety of reasons. The Department wrote that it will not "initiate any action to establish repayment liabilities or limit student eligibility for distance education activiites undertaken before July 1, 2014, so long as the instituttion is making good faith efforts" to secure state authorization.
