Gainful Employment:  The Next Six - Twelve Months

  March 23, 2016

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EST


Now that your first two rounds of GE reporting to the Department of Education are complete, what comes next?  The Department has faced numerous challenges processing the reported data which has led to delays. This may allow institutions some additional time to prepare to respond, and to establish strategies to meet the GE requirements and best serve students; however, the timeline for institutions to respond to ED's data, once it is provided, remains the same. 


Over the next six to twelve months, institutions must be prepared to challenge the Student Completer Lists and the draft Debt-to-Earnings scores, which means laying the groundwork with your student data now.  In the meantime, the next round of reporting will be due in October 2016. 


This webinar will provide guidance on what institutions should be doing now to prepare, as well as providing guidance on how to complete the challenges to ED's data.
