Notifying Students About Professional Licensure Issues

November 30, 2018
 

U. S. Department of Education (ED) regulations affecting state authorization of distance education, issued in December, 2016, that were to take effect on July 1, 2018, addressed with considerable complexity the obligations of institutions to make certain notifications to students enrolling in programs intended to lead to professional licensure. While those rules have now been delayed until 2020 (ED has scheduled additional negotiated rulemaking), the underlying issue of appropriately informing students whether their successful completion of the program in which they are enrolling will enable or qualify them to take professional licensing exams necessary to practice their chosen professional discipline in the location they intend remains.
