The Obama administration has delayed the release of its college ratings system until later this year, according to a blog post published by the Education Department on Wednesday.

Jamienne S. Studley, a deputy under secretary of education who has been leading the development of the ratings, wrote that the administration was “on track to come out with a proposal by this fall and a final version of the new ratings system before the 2015-16 school year.”

Officials previously had said they expected to produce a draft rating system for public comment at some point this spring or in the first half of 2014.

The White House has said that after implementing the rating system in 2015, it plans to persuade Congress to link the ratings to federal student aid by 2018.
