Arlington, VA – According to the Biden administration's Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions report released today, the gainful employment Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) will be delayed until April of 2023, missing the November 1, 2022, master calendar deadline for publication of the final rule. The earliest the rule could go into effect would be July 1, 2024.
“CECU is pleased that the Department of Education is taking the time necessary to reconsider their ill-conceived plans to propose an accountability measure that exempts the vast majority of institutions of higher education,” said CECU’s President and CEO, Dr. Jason Altmire. “We look forward to working with the Department in the months ahead to craft a meaningful and fair rule that applies to all institutions in all sectors, as the Department is authorized to do under Section 454 of the Higher Education Act.”
