Recordings now available for final Borrower Defense Rule webinars

Aaron Lacey January 6, 2017

For anyone who missed our exclusive series of webinars on the final Borrower Defense Rule, or wanted to share them with their colleagues, the recordings and PowerPoint slides are now all available (at no cost) at thompsoncoburn.com/finalborrowerdefensewebinars.

These four in-depth, 90-minute webinars, each focused on a different aspect of the Borrower Defense regulatory package, and were specifically designed to help institutions understand the final rule and its implications for their own organizations.

The individual sessions cover: 

  • The New Borrower Defense Framework 

  • The Revised Financial Responsibility Standards

  • Changes to Closed School and False Certification Discharge

  • The Elimination of Pre-Dispute Arbitration Clauses and the New Repayment Rates for Proprietary Schools

The new rule becomes effective July 1, 2017, so there is still time to get up to speed on the changes and create a plan of action for your organization. 

If you have any questions about the final Borrower Defense Rule or what it could mean for your institution of higher education, please do not hesitate to contact us.
