This document further delays until July 1, 2014, the implementation date of the changes to 34 CFR 600.9(a) and (b) (State authorization regulations) published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010 (75 FR 66833) when an institution's State authorization does not meet the requirements of these regulations by July 1, 2013. The October 29, 2010, final regulations provided for delayed implementation until July 1, 2013, for institutions in States that could not implement the changes in § 600.9 prior to that date and obtained from the State an explanation of how a one-year extension would permit the State to modify its procedures to comply with amended § 600.9. The Department is 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 § 600.9(a) and (b).
In order for an institution that cannot demonstrate it meets the State authorization requirements under the Department's regulations to receive an extension until July 1, 2014, to implement § 600.9(a) and (b), the 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 § 600.9. This explanation must be provided to Department staff upon request.
