The 2019 Gainful Employment Disclosure Template is now available. Read below the POWERS Education Group analysis of the new template, and where and how to post updated disclosures on institutional websites.
ED Sets Deadline and Requirements for New GE Disclosures
In a recent electronic announcement, the U.S. Department of Education released its 2019 version of the Gainful Employment (“GE”) Disclosure Template, and announced that institutions will need to update their current GE disclosures by July 1, 2019. This post contains information about the new template, and where and how to post updated disclosures on institutional websites.
You may have heard that the Department’s proposed rescission of the Obama-era GE rule is in the final stages of pre-publication review, and we are continuing to monitor these developments closely. In the meantime, institutions are reminded to keep their current GE disclosures up to date, as failing to comply with these requirements can lead to claims and complaints by students, state attorneys general, and the Department.
The 2019 Template
The 2019 version is available on ED’s Gainful Employment Disclosure Template page (or click here for a direct download).
Unlike in prior years, the 2019 template is a simple Word document, and institutions will no longer need to use ED’s web-based application to generate completed disclosure forms. Instead, ED instructs institutions to copy the provided text and fill in the information for each of their applicable GE programs (more on this below).
