Gainful Employment

Gainful Employment

On July 1, 2019, the Department of Education published a final rule rescinding the Department’s gainful employment (GE) regulations (2014 Rule) in the Federal Register. Institutions were given the option to early implement the rescission of the GE rule. As detailed in Gainful Employment Electronic Announcement #122, institutions that choose to early implement the rescission of the GE rule will not be required to report GE data for the 2018–19 Award Year to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®), which is otherwise due on October 1, 2019.
