State Authorization Resources and Directory

From the State Higher Education Executive Officers

The U.S. Department of Education has announced rules requiring all institutions of higher education participating in Title IV programs to be able to document compliance with state laws in all states where they offer distance or correspondence education. The Department has indicated that compliance with existing state laws has always been a condition of Title IV eligibility, and the announced regulation simply calls attention to the need for institutions to assure they have legal authority to operate in all the states where they are providing instruction.

To address this need, SHEEO, the national association of state higher education executive officers, will develop a directory of agencies and individuals responsible for implementing state quality assurance laws as well as a compendium of state laws and regulations. The directory will be developed in close cooperation with NCHEMS, the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems, whose Vice President Peter Ewell has led previous surveys of state regulatory practices for postsecondary instruction and the cooperative relationships of states with accrediting associations. In addition, SHEEO will draw on the expertise of university attorneys in preparing the compendium to assure that it meets institutional needs.
