Washington, D.C., July 2, 2015—Today, the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) filed a notice of its intent to appeal the District Court ruling in APSCU v. Duncan. APSCU President and CEO Steve Gunderson released the following statement:
"The gainful employment regulation will impact millions of students enrolled in thousands of programs over the next decade. We believe this regulation is arbitrary and capricious and in violation of federal law. The regulation is harmful to students and inconsistent with the intent of the Congress under the Higher Education Act. It needlessly complicates the efforts of new traditional students to achieve a career-focused education that helps them get jobs and we will continue to fight to keep opportunities open for students who are often struggling to juggle family, work, and school."
