Rules could prompt colleges to pull online programs from some states

Gallatin said a compact between states would mean colleges and universities could avoid extensive paperwork while meeting state requirements. Such an agreement, Gallatin said, would be similar to regional accreditation, in which a school is deemed in compliance in a group of states once the regional board gives it blessing.

A reciprocity agreement “would simplify the process for both higher education institutions and state agencies while continuing to provide for consumer protection,” she said.
