“As the expression goes, all good things come to those who wait, for-profit post-secondary institutions have a new Audit Guide from the US Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General after 16 years.

Whether this new Audit Guide is a good thing will be left to be seen but the Audit Guide definitely updates the required auditor’s testing in a number of areas.

New or key updates to the Audit Guide include an expanded student sample size, student confirmations, review of Gainful Employment Disclosures and information submitted to ED, review of placement rates if utilized in advertising, servicer agreements, changes in extrapolation of errors if material findings exist, and limitations of the auditor in performing the 90/10 calculation.

This webinar will cover the critical changes to ensure institutions understand the new audit requirements and are hiring a CPA firm which is fully qualified to perform an audit in compliance with the new Audit Guide”.
