State authorization approvals for distance learning and issuing appropriate disclosures for programs leading to licensure or certification are recent and critical additions for eligibility to federal financial programs. Whether for distance education or face-to-face instruction in other states, is your institution in compliance in the states where you conduct those activities? Hear from a moderated panel of financial aid, distance education, and compliance administrative professionals to understand expectations arising from federal distance education regulations and gain insights on how stakeholders collaborate to leverage each other's expertise and build an effective institutional compliance strategy and response.
