Gainful Employment Disclosure

Gainful Employment Disclosures

 

On July 1, 2019, the U.S. Department of Education published final regulations (the “Final Rule”) rescinding requirements for programs that are eligible for Title IV federal student financial aid based on preparing students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. The Department also exercised its statutory authority under the Higher Education Act of 1965 to designate the Final Rule, which is not effective until July 1, 2020, “for early implementation, beginning on July 1, 2019, at the discretion of each institution.” Long Island University has implemented this change effective July 1, 2019.
