We've decided to started this blog so that people can share their experiences and advice on each state's process. I've added a Blog area for each state, under which you all can share your comments.
Here's the DE Regulations by State, a helpful State Matrix, and related resources:

If an institution has a “Physical Presence” in New York, then it must apply to the New York State Education Department for permission to operate in New York State. The Physical Presence policy can be found at the following link: http://www.highered.nysed.gov/ocue/ded/policies.html
In short, you DO NOT need to apply for approval from the NYS Education Department if your institution merely:
● Communicates electronically with students in New York State (e.g., by computer or broadcast) in ways that do NOT involve an instructional site or an organized group activity; ● Advertises in New York State media; ● Recruits students, e.g., at college fairs, job fairs, or trade shows.
You DO need to apply for approval if your institution does any of the following:
● Operates an instructional site (a physical location at which instruction is given by a faculty member to a group of students) in New York State. ● Sponsors organized activities within New York State that are related to the academic program (e.g., advising, mentoring, study groups, examination administration for groups of students). ● Has a representative, whether paid or not, acting on its behalf within New York State to arrange or conduct instructional or academic support activities.
