On Tuesday, NASFAA submitted comments to the Department of Education (ED) on proposed institutional and programmatic responsibility regulations, which included a new financial value transparency framework for all programs at all institution types, as well as reinstated gainful employment rules for all programs at proprietary schools and certificate programs at all institution types. NASFAA challenged ED’s process as well as statutory authority in several areas related to financial value transparency, and questioned the validity of the new earnings premium metric. Other topics NASFAA addressed include new financial aid offer requirements, valid high school diploma requirements, and transcript withholding.
The Department of Education (ED) is set to launch its new grants management system, G6, for the grantmaking community with a modernized user interface and new functionality on Monday, August 7, 2023. The new URL will be www.g6.ed.gov and the old G5 URL will redirect users to the new page. Additionally, on August 7, Login.gov will launch as a sign-in method for accessing the G5 page along with the current G5 sign-in page. ED notes that eventually it will exclusively use Login.gov as the authentication method for signing in to G6. More details on the transition are listed here.
