In the wake of Corinthian Colleges' (COCO) dissolution due to actions taken by the Department of Education, Wells Fargo thinks the government did not intend for this scenario to unfold. After speaking with unnamed "knowledgeable sources" about the issue, the firm does not expect the department to take similar actions in the future because doing so would create too much of a workload for the department, Wells believes. 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 (LOPE), ITT Educational (ESI) and Strayer (STRA).

10:35 EDTAPOLApollo Education sinks after DoD puts subsidiary on probation
Shares of Apollo Education are sinking after the for-profit education provider disclosed that the U.S. Department of Defense put its University of Phoenix subsidiary on probationary status in respect of its participation in the DoD Tuition Assistance Program for active duty military personnel. The DoD is considering whether to terminate the DoD Voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding with the University which is the basis on which the University's active duty military students participate in the DoD Tuition Assistance Program. While on probationary status, currently eligible enrolled students will remain eligible to participate in the Tuition Assistance Program, but newly enrolled or transfer students of the University will not be eligible. In fiscal year 2015, receipts from the DoD Tuition Assistance Program represented less than 1% of University of Phoenix net revenue, and during Q4 approximately 4,000 students received tuition benefits under the program. University of Phoenix currently is reviewing the notice of probation, Apollo stated. The stock is down 10%, or $1.27, to $11.09 in morning trading.
