The Education Department today released new proposed regulations, including new rules for for-profit colleges and expanding access to Pell Grants for incarcerated students.
The proposal would:
Reinstate the 90/10 rule, which would require all proprietary institutions that receive federal aid to draw at least 10 percent of their revenue from non-federal sources.
Clarify regulations for changes in ownership of a college, including when a college is converting from a public to a private or nonprofit.
Enable Pell Grants to cover up to the entire cost of attendance for incarcerated students enrolled in a prison education program. The proposal would also increase reporting and oversight requirements for education programs in prisons.
