FAPSC E-Flash a membership publication May 2010
The US Department of Education continues to push draft regulations that establish debt to income ratios, and DENY access to federal financial aid to students at institutions that do not meet the requirements. The regulations are an attempt to define “gainful employment,” but have extremely negative consequences for our students, our programs, and our state’s economy and workforce.
Use this LINK to download directions on how to communicate this issue to our two U.S. Senators, and our U.S. Representatives.
