New Regulations: The Sequel Borrower Defense to Repayment Part II and Gainful Employment Part III
Thu, Aug 16, 2018 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT

You may have heard that the US Department of Education has regulated again on these two topics. While there are some similarities, these proposed rule packages contain major changes that will affect your institution. Attend this webinar to learn what the Notices of Proposed Rulemaking say. Also learn how you can comment so you can try to change the direction of these regulations before November 1.

This two-hour webinar will cover the Borrower Defense to Repayment NPRM and, if published as anticipated (given media reports), the Gainful Employment regulations. The presentation will discuss elements of the proposed regulations, paying close attention to areas where the Department has specifically solicited comments.

Our presenters are Aaron Lacey, a partner in the law firm of Thompson Coburn, and Dennis Cariello, a shareholder in the law firm of Hogan Marren Babbo & Rose. Both lawyers are past NYSFAAA presenters and nationally known experts on higher education law and policy. Mr. Lacey served as a non-federal negotiator during the most recently completed negotiated rulemaking on the Borrower Defense to Repayment regulations. Mr. Cariello served as a non-federal negotiator during the 2016 negotiated rulemaking on the Borrower Defense to Repayment regulations.
