Program Integrity Rules
In 2010, the Department of Education adopted a new set of rules with major implications for colleges and universities. The new program integrity rules primarily focus on Title IV of the Higher Education Act and establish new compliance requirements for administrators to follow. Of the 14 topic areas in which changes were instituted, five topics of significant concern are changes to guidelines regarding credit hours, gainful employment, incentive compensation, misrepresentation and state authorization.
