Projecting Debt-to-Earnings Rates

Projecting Debt-to-Earnings Rates
December 9, 2014
1:00 pm CST

Though the regulations will not take effect until July 1, 2015, and lobbying, elections, and court challenges likely stand between the effective date and the first round of possible sanctions, many institutions already are attempting to assess whether their GE programs will produce passing rates. This webinar will focus exclusively on the projection of debt-to-income rates, providing participants with a step-by-step process for estimating program performance under the new rules.

The gainful employment webinar series will be presented by Aaron D. Lacey, a partner in Thompson Coburn’s Higher Education practice and editorial director of REGucation, the firm’s higher education law and policy blog. An experienced higher education attorney, with time served both as outside and in-house counsel, Aaron’s practice is dedicated entirely to assisting postsecondary institutions and their partners to advance their educational and operational objectives while navigating complex regulatory environments.
