The Department of Education (ED) last week released its proposed regulations for establishing Title IV student aid eligibility for individuals who lack a high school diploma or equivalent, commonly referred to as the ability to benefit (ATB) regulations. ED negotiated ATB in a rulemaking session held in early 2022, where it also discussed institutional and programmatic eligibility topics, including the 90/10 rule, gainful employment, financial responsibility, certification procedures, and administrative capability. This is the second article in a three-part series delving deeper into the specific provisions of the proposed rules.
In "The Great Upheaval: Higher Education's Past, Present, and Uncertain Future," authors Arthur Levine and Scott Van Pelt take a hard, realistic look at how the mounting pressure placed on the postsecondary education system by multiple stakeholders is likely to lead to internal restructuring that will redirect and profoundly reshape U.S. higher education. Insight from the book "can assist financial aid professionals who want to be involved in shaping policy, whether institutionally by presenting proposals to other departments and leaders or legislatively by becoming more involved in processes like negotiated rulemaking, lobbying, or commenting on proposals," writes Jaime Lang, who read the book and shared her opinions of its content with NASFAA. What follows are Jaime's takeaways, thoughts, and reflections.
