EDUCAUSE, the higher education information technology nonprofit that
oversees management of the .edu domain, has opened a public comment
period on a proposal to expand the eligibility requirements to obtain a
name in the domain. Currently an institution must be accredited by one
of six regional accrediting agencies to apply for a name in .edu. Under
the proposed change, postsecondary institutions accredited by any
national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of
Education would be eligible. Officials at schools including Pioneer
Pacific College in Oregon and Westchester Business Institute in New
York, which are not currently eligible, support the proposal, saying
that without .edu addresses, there is a perception their schools are
not legitimate.
