Distance Learning Compliance Statement
On October 29, 2010, the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) released the following new regulation for higher education institutions as “§ 600.9(c) State authorization”:
“If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be legally offering postsecondary distance or correspondence education in that State. An institution must be able to document to the Secretary the State’s approval upon request.”
In order to comply with this regulation, NCMC tracks distance education students by place of residence, and participates in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement.
