TICAS Comment on New Jersey Gainful Employment Regulations

In 2022, New Jersey became the first state to pass its own version of a gainful employment law to protect students against high-cost career preparation programs that lead to limited earning potential after graduation. As the state prepares to implement the law fully, TICAS submitted comments supporting implementation and providing guidance to further strengthen proposed regulations. The New Jersey law may provide an example for other states to follow in complementing federal gainful employment regulations with protections designed specifically for their students and state-funded financial aid programs.
