Summary

As part of the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965 the Congress has examined concerns over the integrity of the student aid program and has consequently looked at reforming the current structure used to approve schools for program participation. The current structure has a "triad" format whereby schools that wish to participate must: (1) be accredited by an agency recognized for that purpose by the Secretary of Education; (2) be licensed or otherwise legally authorized to provide postsecondary education in the state in which it is located; and (3) be deemed eligible and certified to participate in federal student aid programs by the Department of Education. Reauthorization bills have proposed revising the definitions of eligible institutions and reforming the process by which institutions become eligible to participate in federal programs. However, the bills have differed on the kinds of changes they would require in standards imposed on schools and on which "leg" of the triad would be relied on for tougher scrutiny of institutions. A contrasting proposal, the Nunn/Gordon bill, focuses specifically on fraud and abuse in the Guaranteed Student Loan program by schools in the proprietary sector. Sixteen notes are included. (JB)
