APSCU Sends Second Letter to Secretary Duncan on State Authorization Regulation

Washington, D.C., May 13, 2013—APSCU President and CEO Steve Gunderson sent a letter to Education Secretary Arne Duncan expressing concern with the department's pending enforcement of the state authorization regulation. The letter states, "We are now less than two months away from the enforcement of the state authorization regulation, and institutions in many states still do not know if their students will be eligible for Title IV aid on July 1. If the department decides to strip eligibility from institutions across the country as of July 1, students will suffer the consequences when their enrollment plans are disrupted through no fault of their own."
