The U.S. Department of Education is at it again, and this time its proposal for Gainful Employment regulations could be devastating for private sector (for-profit) colleges, universities, and other career training programs that participate in the federal financial aid programs. In the last half of 2013 the U.S. Department of Education (ED) engaged in the process of negotiated rulemaking with the aim of imposing metrics on certain postsecondary institutions to assess whether programs prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. In December 2013, ED released draft regulations that spell out a regulatory scheme with potentially catastrophic results.
ED’s own projections forecast that 20% of affected programs will not pass the metrics it has proposed in draft form and that projection may be woefully optimistic because of the outdated data upon which ED has relied to make its projections. Programs that fail these gainful employment metrics will lose their ability to participate in the federal financial aid programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act.
