Years in the waiting, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) has finally issued its controversial and long-awaited "gainful employment" regulations in final form.

Join expert speaker, Yolanda R. Gallegos, in this webinar about final gainful employment regulations as she condenses and simplifies the hundreds of pages of these regulations.

These new graduate debt and earnings standards will create unprecedented administrative obligations on public, non-profit, and for-profit sectors of higher education. The regulations have generated heated opposition from all sectors of higher education and two lawsuits are already underway challenging their legality.

Tune into this latest briefing and learn of changes that ED has made to the final regulations including:

  • Eliminating the pCDR metric for purposes of assessing programmatic eligibility
  • Changing the applicable interest rate for calculating debt
  • Expanding federal student warnings
  • Expanding disclosure requirements
  • Expanding certification requirements
  • Expanding transition period

Session Highlights:

  • Highlights of two lawsuits already filed challenging these regulations
  • New information revealed by ED in the preamble to its regulations
  • Ways to monitor your institution's likelihood of passing debt to earnings metrics
