Subject: Notice to Further Delay Implementation Date for Certain State Authorization Regulations
Within the next several days, we will publish a Notice in the Federal Register announcing a further delay until July 1, 2014 of the implementation date for 34 CFR 600.9(a) and (b) of the State authorization regulations when an institution's State authorization does not meet the requirements by the earlier delayed implementation date of July 1, 2013. We are providing this further extension to qualifying institutions because several States have notified us that they need additional time to develop or complete processes in order for some institutions to be able to comply with the State authorization provisions in 34 CFR 600.9(a) and (b). To receive a further extension, an institution must obtain from the State an explanation of how an additional one-year extension will permit the State to modify its procedures to comply with amended 34 CFR 600.9.
We have attached to this Electronic Announcement, in PDF format, a copy of the Notice that will be published in the Federal Register.
