Subject: Gainful Employment Electronic Announcement #24 - NPRM: Application and Approval Process for New Programs

On September 27, 2011, we published in the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NRPM) that proposes changes to the regulations to streamline the application and approval process for new educational programs that qualify for student financial assistance under title IV of the HEA. A PDF copy of the NPRM is attached to this announcement. It is also available directly on the IFAP website under Federal Registers.

The deadline for submitting comments to this NPRM is November 14, 2011. Please carefully review the information in the NPRM for the procedures to be used for the submission and review of comments.

IMPORTANT: The proposed changes to the regulatory requirements in this NPRM do not negate current regulatory requirements. Schools are reminded that they must continue to comply with the current rules until any final regulations that result from the NPRM go into effect.
