Strategies for Improving Debt-to-Earnings Rates under the new Gainful Employment Rules aka WHAT SHOULD YOU BE DOING NOW
Webinar - Thu, Nov 12, 2015
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

As many in higher education are aware, the U.S. Department of Education’s new Gainful Employment (GE) regulations became effective on July 1, 2015. While the GE regulatory framework includes reporting, disclosure, and certification requirements, it most prominently features two metrics, collectively referred to as the debt-to-earnings or D/E rates. Programs failing to produce D/E Rates above certain thresholds eventually can lose Title IV eligibility. In this session, the presenters will explore a range of strategies for potentially improving D/E rate performance in years to come. These are things schools should consider doing NOW – before the numbers hit the fans.

If you are a Proprietary institution and/or offer programs less than 2 years in length this webinar is required attendance.

3. Under extenuating circumstances, such as illness, the two-week deadline may be waived. Such refunds may be authorized either by the Committee Chair or by the Treasurer. They may request whatever documentation they deem appropriate on a document.
