ED to Hold Hearings on Streamlining Regulations

May 6, 2011

NACUBO invites members to share their suggestions for Department of Education regulations in need of revision. ED has announced that it will hold hearings later this month to solicit recommendations for a new negotiated rulemaking effort. Written testimony will also be accepted until May 20.

The ED announcement lists the following as likely topics for the negotiated rulemaking process:

  • Repeal of unnecessary Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) program regulations
  • Changes to the income-contingent and income-based repayment plans for federal student loans
  • Medications to the process for determining total and permanent disability for federal student loans
  • Streamlining institutional reporting requirements
  • Improving state identification of poorly performing teacher preparation programs

If your institution has concerns about these or other Title IV regulations that you believe are ripe for reconsideration, please share them with NACUBO by sending an email to Bryan Dickson, program analyst.
