The issue of State Authorization has not gone away. The federal regulation requiring institutions to comply with state regulations was "vacated" by a federal court order, which was upheld in 2012. The regulation was set aside on purely procedural grounds.
Federal regulations acknowledge that even without the federal regulations, states still expect you to follow their laws. Reciprocity agreements have been drafted but are far from being in order to be adopted.
Please notify our office immediately. It is important that we be aware of all activity so that we can navigate regulations to comply and protect the placement of that student.
We know that your team works hard to make placements available, and that these experiences are invaluable to students. With your help, we are working as hard as we can to keep all opportunities open to NYU students.
Prior to securing authorization, please understand that is may be necessary to restrict placements within specific states.

A sample statement could be, "Students from x, y, and z states are restricted from enrolling at this time."
One or a combination of the following could happen: fines may be assessed to New York University, the state may request that the student be pulled from their placement or de-enrolled in their program (which could incur additional financial cost, and a strained relationship would exist moving forward toward securing authorization within that specific state).
