The last I remember seeing was that registration was restricted to "4
year, degree-granting colleges and universities."

I don't believe they are restricted in such a fashion. In any case 
verfication has been very lax in the past(try http://www.suid.edu.)

Personally, I hope the issue is revisited soon as I see little reason 
why other educational institutions should be disallowed registrations in

If Mike Roberts is successful in gifting his former employer Educase with
control of .edu, I imagine this will change(and registrants will begin 
incurring fees as well.)
