In the fall of 2013, ITC invited its member institutions to provide valuable information about their programs to distance education practitioners.  One hundred and forty three community colleges completed the ITC survey.

In Focus: The Year in Review 2013: The Great Recession Continues, but Not for Everyone

In 2013, ITC’s national survey of distance education programs once again confirmed that student enrollment in online courses continues to grow at a higher rate than overall student enrollment at colleges and universities. Although, most online programs no longer see the double-digit growth they experienced only five years ago, a robust, steady increase in the popularity for online learning continues. Students have “voted with their feet” by enrolling in distance education courses when they are available. From fall 2012 to fall 2013, ITC’s survey participants reported a 5.2 percent rate of growth in student enrollment in their online programs.

Rulemaking Committee Discusses Department of Ed State Authorization Proposal

A Negotiated Rulemaking committee is discussing the Department of Education's proposed language that would restrict a college’s ability to offer federal financial aid to the out-of-state students located in that state if the institution lacks approval from that state in which the student is located [see Issue Paper 2 Program Integrity and Improvement Issues attachment below]. The courts "vacated" a similar proposed regulation in 2011 and 2012 because the Department of Education had not followed the proper procedures, such as issuing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), soliciting public comment, etc.

Now the Department is following the proper procedure, although it is unclear whether Congress would have to approve the proposals, such as through the upcoming reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, for them to become regulations institutions and states must follow. ITC has several friends on the committee, including representatives from several higher education institutions, WCET and NC-SARA.
