How the Federal Government Will Publicize if Your Institution and Programs Are Worth the Price

Cooley partner and education practice group chair Jay Vaughan participated in this panel focusing on the unprecedented “financial value transparency” framework established by the US Department of Education (ED). These new regulations will measure and hold institutions accountable for the earnings outcomes, borrowing, costs and debt of all postsecondary programs – not just programs designed to lead to “gainful employment” in a recognized occupation. This panel covered:

  • Standards and methodologies that can cause an educational program to be federally designated as “high debt burden” or “low earning.”
  • Consequences of such designations on federal student aid eligibility, enrollments and finances.
  • Substantial program-level and student data collection that ED is imposing on institutions to implement these regulations.
  • Practical insights to help guide institutional decision-makers as they confront potential challenges under the framework.
