The Obama Administration earlier today announced new proposed gainful employment regulations. The regulations would address growing concerns about burdensome student loan debt by requiring career colleges, many of which are owned by for-profit education companies, to do a better job of preparing students for gainful employment or risk losing access to taxpayer-funded federal student aid, the administration stated. Under the regulations, all gainful employment programs would have to pass metrics to continue eligibility in the federal student financial aid program, including: the estimated annual loan payment of typical graduates does not exceed 20% of their discretionary earnings or 8% of their total earnings and the default rate for former students does exceed 30%. About 20% of for-profit education programs would fail to meet the standards in the regulations, and another 10% would be in a warning zone, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said yesterday, according to Inside Higher Education. Publicly traded companies in the space include American Public Education (APEI), Apollo Education (APOL), Bridgepoint Education (BPI), Career Education (CECO), Corinthian Colleges (COCO), DeVry (DV), Grand Canyon Education (LOPE), ITT Educational (ESI) and Strayer (STRA).
