We are one country composed of 50 unique states and 16 territories each with their own laws, regulations, and personalities. Postsecondary institutions, and particularly those which engage in multi-state activities, hold the responsibility to comply with local laws and those which govern the activities that cross state lines. Additionally, Federal regulations tie state compliance with the ability to provide Title IV Federal Financial Aid. Institution faculty and staff are often surprised by the responsibilities that must be met when educational and employment activities occur in or from another state. Additionally, faculty and staff are often surprised to learn that these state requirements apply to military students.

This session will explore the foundation of state oversight of activities of a postsecondary institution including state institutional approval, state professional program approval, employment law related oversight for purposes of state taxation, and State Department of Labor requirements. We will provide an understanding of the intersection of state institutional approval with Federal regulations for purpose of participating in Title IV HEA Programs. This session will provide ample time to answer participant questions and engage in discussion of experiences at their institutions. Participants will leave the session with resources that summarize state and federal distance education regulations as well as a list of sources for further reference.

Session Outcomes:

  • Be aware of institutional compliance with state requirements when serving students, including military students, located in a different state than where the institution is located.
  • Be aware of institutional compliance with state requirements when employing faculty and staff working from a different state than where the institution is located.
  • Have an understanding of Federal Regulations tied to state institutional approval and explanation of a state authorization reciprocity agreement.
