How legislation can help prevent abrupt college closures

Reported by Education Dive, potential regulations suggested by the Department of Education could include financial triggers that force colleges into “teach-out” plans, even if they don’t end up closing.

The goal here is to prevent students from being left stuck last-minute without notice after a college abruptly closes.

The takeaway? Hopefully, none of our own institutions will ever be in that situation. But serving as a “recommended transfer partner” for these institutions may become an earlier discussion than ever before.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
