Final Push for State Authorization Rule - Carl Straumsheim, Inside Higher Ed

The U.S. Department of Education will make one last effort in the Obama administration to finalize rules governing how colleges become authorized to offer distance education programs to students in other states. Many observers had expected the department to leave the issue of state authorization for the next administration to sort out. “We thought this had been put on indefinite hold, with ‘indefinite’ meaning next to never,” said Russell Poulin, director of policy and analysis for the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies. "I would expect to see a provision in the rule, which acknowledges interstate reciprocity agreements,” said Marshall A. Hill, executive director of SARA’s national council. “I will be really surprised if there’s anything much in there that causes a problem for what we’re trying to do.” https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2016/06/06/education-department-make-final-push-state-authorization-rule
