CECU Press Release: CECU Statement on Delayed Deadline for Gainful Employment Requirements

March 7, 2017 – Washington, DC – In response to the announcement from the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid office that it will extend the deadlines for schools to submit alternative earnings appeals and disclosures until July 1, Steve Gunderson, president & CEO of Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU), said the following: 
“We very much appreciate the Department and the Administration recognizing the problems with this rule. We have asked them to delay the enforcement and to conduct a review of the unintended consequences of this rule as it begins to play out. This is very good news for thousands of students who seek to complete their career education and begin their careers. We are prepared to share with the Department how this rule treats identical programs differently based upon the geography and economy of where the students live. It is time for constructive conversations.”
