No Indication from ED on GE Reporting Deadline Extension

By Mandy Sponholtz, Policy & Federal Relations Team

As of yesterday afternoon, NASFAA has not received a response from the Department of Education (ED) to our request for an extension of the July 31 gainful employment (GE) reporting deadline.

Based on this latest development, we encourage schools to make good faith efforts to meet tomorrow’s reporting deadline.  During the NASFAA conference, ED indicated it would send letters in the first week of August to the presidents of schools that fail to report GE data, and continued violations to report data may result in sanctions.

The table below outlines the GE reporting requirements and resources to find relevant guidance released since final rules were published on October 31, 2014..
