Comments in Response to the U.S. Department of Education’s Proposed Rules for the Approval of New “Gainful Employment” Programs

The Institute for College Access & Success (TICAS) and 23 other education, student, civil rights and public policy organizations submitted public comments regarding the U.S. Department of Education’s draft regulation amending the approval process for new “gainful employment” programs to be eligible for federal financial aid. The comments address the groups’ concerns that the proposed changes “will enable institutions to easily evade the modest final gainful employment debt measures.” The comments were submitted on November 14, 2011 in response to the Federal Register Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) published on September 27, 2011.
