SUMMARY: The Secretary announces the deadline date for the receipt of 
information from institutions for programs that prepare students for 
gainful employment in a recognized occupation that are eligible to 
participate in the Federal student assistance programs authorized under 
title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), for the 
2010-2011 award year. The Secretary also announces the continued 
collection of gainful employment program information for prior award 
years.
    Deadline Date: November 15, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 29, 2010, the Secretary published 
in the Federal Register (75 FR 66832) final regulations related to 
postsecondary educational programs that lead to gainful employment in 
recognized occupations and the information that institutions are 
required to report under 34 CFR 668.6(a)(1).
    The regulations in 34 CFR 668.6(a)(2)(i)(A) and (a)(2)(i)(B) 
provide that institutions must report information for the 2006-2007 
award year to the extent that the information is available and for the 
2007-2008 through the 2009-2010 award years no later than October 1, 
2011. The regulations in 34 CFR 668.6(a)(2)(i)(C) further provide that 
an institution must report information required for the most recently 
completed award year no earlier than September 30, but no later than 
the date established by the Secretary through a notice published in the 
Federal Register. Accordingly, through this notice, the Secretary 
announces that institutions must report the information required under 
34 CFR 668.6(a)(1) for the 2010-2011 award year no later than November 
15, 2011. Although information for the gainful employment programs for 
prior award years is due by October 1, 2011, consistent with the 
submission date established by this notice for the 2010-2011 award 
year, the Department will continue to accept information for prior 
award years through November 15, 2011.
