Subject: Recording of Conference Call on Gainful Employment NPRM

On August 11, 2010 we held a public conference call to discuss the recently published Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NRPM) related to the requirement that certain academic programs lead to "gainful employment in a recognized occupation" in order for students in such programs to be eligible for Title IV student assistance. As promised, we are making available, at the web address (URL) below, a recording of that call.

As noted in the August 6, 2010 Electronic Announcement that informed the community of the August 11 call, its purpose was to provide an overview of the NPRM and to clarify our proposal in response to your questions. Comments to the NPRM should be submitted using the process published in the NPRM.

The recoding of the August 11, 2010 conference call is available at:
