The Higher Education Regulatory Outlook for 2024



As we enter 2024, the U.S. Department of Education is actively advancing its ambitious regulatory agenda for institutions of higher education. We invite you to join us on January 30 for a live, 90-minute webinar featuring Aaron Lacey, Chair of Thompson Coburn’s Higher Education practice. During this session, he will examine the ongoing expansions, revisions, and revivals to the regulatory landscape.

Aaron will discuss the final rules implemented last fall, which are set to take effect this summer. These encompass critical areas such as financial value transparency and gainful employment, administrative capability, certification, state authorization, and financial responsibility. Priority considerations for institutions will be highlighted.

Aaron also will review the status of current rulemaking activities, including student loan debt relief, program integrity and institutional quality, and Title IX. He will discuss potential timelines for comments, final rules, and implementation. Institutions are strongly encouraged to attend this session, as the volume of proposed and newly effective rules slated for 2024 is substantial.
