DeVos delays and eases appeals process for colleges under gainful employment rule

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is taking steps to further delay and ease the appeals process for career college programs subject to the Obama-era gainful employment rule.

The Education Department announced today that colleges will have until February to file appeals of their graduates’ earnings data — a key metric the department uses under the regulation to determine if graduates are earning enough to pay off the debt they took on to attend the school.

The Trump administration also plans to ease the process of appeals for colleges that are objecting to the government’s earning data on the grounds that it doesn’t fully capture the income of their graduates. The department said it would scrap a requirement that colleges who use a survey to measure their graduates’ earnings meet a minimum response rate.
