GAO-11-765R: Jun 27, 2011
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Department of Education's (Education) new rule on gainful employment. GAO found that (1) the final rule amends the Student Assistance General Provisions regulations to improve disclosure of relevant information and to establish minimal measures for determining whether certain postsecondary educational programs lead to gainful employment in recognized occupations, and the conditions under which these educational programs remain eligible for the student financial assistance programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended; and (2) Education complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
