Are you well versed in basic state authorization compliance strategies, but desire advanced discussions and knowledge of the potential institutional impact from the outcomes of the 2019 Federal Rulemaking process and Congressional action on HEA Reauthorization?  Then you need, Update on HEA & Federal Rulemaking: The Impact on Institutional Compliance. 


WCET-SAN is pleased to bring together experts in the field of State Authorization and Education Law to discuss and help institutions understand what is currently occurring and what has taken place in Congress and with the U.S. Department of Education’s 2019 Rulemaking.


The workshop will address the following:

  • Status and Compliance Management of Federal Regulations
  • Status and Effect of HEA Reauthorization
  • Professional Licensure Disclosures/Research
  • Reciprocity and SARA Compliance
  • Engaging Institution Colleagues with Timely Compliance Updates



Tuesday, October 1, 2019 – Wednesday, October 2, 2019


In a small group setting, the participants will participate in interactive exercises to obtain direction and understanding about Federal lawmaking and the impact on State Authorization compliance.  Attendees will collaborate on compliance techniques and determine a plan of action to share this information with their institutions.

Who Should Attend?


Professionals who manage state authorization, regulations, and federal updates at educational institutions.  This workshop focuses on developing participants who have an understanding of state authorization who can build upon that knowledge to more specifically address more challenging facets of state authorization maintenance in regard to understanding that the basis of state authorization is state compliance, but that Title IV funding may be tied to compliance with Federal regulations.

WCET's State Authorization Network (SAN) is based on the philosophy: "Expecting each institution to navigate authorization regulations in every state is highly inefficient. Working cooperatively, institutions can share the burden." See the SAN website for a list of WCET SAN members.
