On January 18, 2022, the Department convened a negotiated rulemaking committee, the Institutional and Programmatic Eligibility Committee, to consider proposed regulations for the Federal Student Aid programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, (HEA). Through the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) published on May 19, 2023, docket number ED-2022-OPE-0062, the Secretary proposed new regulations to promote transparency, competence, stability, and effective outcomes for students in the provision of postsecondary education. The Final Rule under new § 668.605 requires institutions to provide warnings to current and prospective students if a Gainful Employment (GE) program is at risk of a loss of title IV, HEA eligibility, specifies the content and delivery requirements for such notifications, and provides that students must acknowledge having seen the warning before the institution may disburse any title IV, HEA funds. In addition to providing the English-language warnings, the institution will be required to provide accurate translations of the English-language warning into the primary languages of current and prospective students with limited English proficiency. Updates to the regulations since the NPRM has changed the estimated burden for this collection as identified in the NPRM. This is a request for a new collection designated 1845-0173 by OMB during the NPRM stage of this information collection filing.
