On or before July 1 of each year, New York State Institutions of Higher Education are required, by statute, to file with the New York State Education Department, certification of compliance with the provisions of Article 129-A (§§6430-6438) and Article 129-B (§§6439-6449) of the New York State Education Law.
You can access the text of Article 129-A and Article 129-B on the New York State Legislature site.
INSTRUCTIONS: Please print and complete the certification of compliance form attached at the bottom of the page, scan the signed form, and upload it to the IDEx. A digital signature is also acceptable for this form as long as the person preparing the form has been authorized to use the President’s/CEO’s digital signature.
Do not mail the original certification form to the New York State Education Department. We recommend that you keep it on file at your institution.
We are unable to provide due date extensions on this form since the due date is in statute. Institutions should submit the form as soon as possible if the due date has passed. This form will not become locked in the IDEx until the collection year is over.
Please be aware that Article 129-A and Article 129-B state that an institution that fails to file the required certification of compliance shall be ineligible to receive state aid or assistance until it files the certification.
