Gainful Employment Disclosures and Student Warnings
Webinar - Thu, March 2, 2017
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

This advanced-level webinar will focus on the new 2017 GE Disclosure Template that all institutions with gainful employment programs must start distributing by April 3, 2017.

The webinar will review the content of the disclosures, as well as the new distribution requirements that go into effect on that date.

The presenter also will examine the new student warnings that schools with failing gainful employment programs were to begin making to current and prospective students on February 8, 2017.

Again, the presenter will review not only the required elements of the warnings, but also the complex distribution requirements that govern their disclosure.

Finally, the webinar will include a discussion regarding any challenges to the gainful employment rule that may be in play as of the date of the webinar, to include suspension orders, rule making, and lawsuits.
