The WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET), a leading cooperative, non-profit provider of solutions and services that accelerate the adoption of effective online learning practices and policies in American post-secondary education, has announced a targeted advisement service established to help institutions respond to new regulations proposed by the U.S. Department of Education. The new State Authorization Network (SAN) responds to the October 29, 2010, U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) new “program integrity” regulations. The 90-page set of regulations on program integrity and student aid programs covers a wide range of issues, including Gainful Employment, Incentive Compensation, and Credit-Hour Definition; Institutions will be required to demonstrate that they are in compliance with state requirements applicable to distance learning in any state in which they enroll students by July 1, 2011.
