Overview of the U.S. Department of Education’s final rule on accreditation and related matters
Presenter: Nicholas Kent, Senior VP of Policy and Research, CECU
Date: November 19, 2019
Time: 2:00pm EST
On November 1, 2019, the U.S. Department of Education released its official final rule on accreditation and related matters, including state authorization requirements for institutions offering distance education or correspondence courses. The final rule culminates over a year of robust discussion and debate which sought to balance the need for eliminating burdensome federal regulations, promoting innovation in higher education, and maintaining educational quality. The final regulations increase student access, improve teach-outs for students at closed or closing institutions, restore focus and clarity to the accreditor recognition process, and integrate risk-based review of accreditors. Join CECU Senior VP of Policy and Research Nicholas Kent for this exclusive 60-minute webinar for an overview of how the final regulations will impact accreditors, institutions, and students when they go into effect next year.
