In case you missed it, we announced some great news yesterday that the Department of Education’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for a proposed re-write of the Gainful Employment regulation has been delayed until at least April 2023! Other rulemaking topics that will have NPRM publication delayed until April 2023 include: PPA Certification, Financial Responsibility, Administrative Capability, and Ability to Benefit.
Given the ambitious scope of its regulatory agenda, we applaud the Department for not rushing the process given the complexity and impact of the GE rule and other regulations on schools and students. In particular, AACS actively urged the Department to carefully evaluate impacts of the proposed GE rule during a meeting that the AACS delegation had with senior U.S. Department of Education officials in May 2022.
You may be wondering … What does the delay in rulemaking on these topics mean for beauty and wellness schools? What rulemaking issues remain on the Department’s agenda for finalization this year, and how may they impact your school? Will this development change our priorities and strategy, and how we respond in the public comment period?
If so … join Cecil Kidd, Executive Director, AACS and Katherine Brodie, Partner, Duane Morris LLP on a webinar this Friday, June 24 at 3:00 pm as they answer these and any other burning questions you might have regarding the impact of all this on the beauty and wellness education sector. We look forward to seeing you on the webinar!
