The discussion then turned to changes to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program and the midterm elections.

The Department of Education (ED) on Thursday announced final rules for the 90/10 rule for for-profit colleges, Pell Grant Eligibility for Prison Education Programs (PEP), and procedures for institutions undergoing changes in ownership.
