At the end of March 2014, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) released its controversial and long-awaited “gainful employment” notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). This mammoth 841-page release sets forth ED’s plan to impose regulatory standards on certain postsecondary institutions to measure whether graduates are earning sufficient amounts to service their student loan debt. This webinar takes up where Yolanda Gallegos’ February 2014 webinar left off.
While the NPRM contains some adjustments to its December 2013 draft, the NPRM maintains several components and adds new elements that raise questions about ED’s proposed metrics calculation methodology including:
This session by Yolanda Gallegos will inform affected postsecondary schools of the proposed gainful employment regulations and how to challenge them before they become final and effective.
The audience will be informed of documents not disseminated to the public that were obtained by the presenter pursuant to FOIA requests. These documents provide an inside look into how ED plans on obtaining data to implement its gainful employment regulations and reveal significant concerns about the reliability of that data.
