Reminder: New ED Regulations Now In Effect
July 1 marked the beginning of the Department of Education's award year and, as is often the case, several regulations went into effect that day.
The new rules:
- Determine if educational programs prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.
- Implement the Violence Against Women Act.
- Ensure that institutions are authorized to operate in their states. ED delayed the state authorization implementation date several times.
Under the master calendar dictated by the Higher Education Act, final rules issued by November 1 generally become effective the following July 1.
