Gainful Employment Rule Survives For-Profit Group’s Court Challenge
A federal judge on Tuesday, June 23 rejected a serious legal challenge, brought by the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities, to the controversial Gainful Employment rule. The lobbying group’s lawsuit was the highest hurdle remaining for the proposed Gainful Employment rule, which will judge career-oriented programs on their graduates’ ability to repay their student loans. The Gainful Employment rule is slated to take effect on July 1.*
The final rule, which was released last fall, is expected to cause 1,400 programs, 99 percent of them at for-profit colleges, to be put at risk of losing eligibility for federal student aid.*
