Sale price$399.00


New Regulations That Impact Your Campus Interstate Education & Compliance Requirements

The U.S. Department of Education has recently been discussing and drafting regulatory language that, if adopted, would substantially change how institutions oversee interstate education and where they may or may not be able to deliver degree programs. Failure to understand and satisfy such regulatory requirements would carry significant and costly legal penalties for institutions.

Our expert presenter takes the confusion out of the potential new requirements, outlines the key connections between the state and federal governments with regards to state authorization and reciprocity agreements and ways to ensure your campus remains compliant. She’ll offer insight into how to talk to faculty about their critical roles with these requirements and best practices to add a “state authorization check” to the program proposal process.

Navigate the challenging and nuanced state authorization requirements for online and distance learning at the state and federal level with confidence. Avoid noncompliance risk through careful planning and administrative checks.
