Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) released guidance explaining how it planned to implement controversial 2016 amendments to the Borrower’s Defense Rule, which requires institutions participating in Title IV of the Higher Education Act to demonstrate financial stability. The amendments have created onerous and confusing reporting requirements for public, private, and for-profit institutions across the country.

Join Ballard Spahr Education attorneys as they discuss the history behind the DOE’s new litigation reporting requirement, its impact on colleges and universities who receive Title IV funding, and what changes lie ahead with respect to borrower defense-to-repayment, triggering events, and financial responsibility.
