Higher Education Regulations Study
The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 authorizes [PDF, 33K] the Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance to conduct a study to determine the extent to which regulations affecting higher education are duplicative, no longer necessary, inconsistent with other federal regulations, and/or overly burdensome. The Higher Education Regulations Study [PDF, 144K] will review and analyze only higher education regulations within the Higher Education Act (HEA).
As one of the study's required elements, the Committee must convene two review panels [PDF, 27K] of individuals who have significant experience with federal regulations in order to review regulations and provide recommendations with respect to streamlining and/or elimination. The Committee is also required to develop and maintain a website [PDF, 17K] that provides information on the study and includes an area for the public to offer recommendations for streamlining regulations. Below, please take an opportunity to comment on a particular higher education regulation. We welcome the comments and feedback of all stakeholders. Your comments will ultimately be used to identify regulations that can be streamlined and/or eliminated.
Please be advised that if you leave this website before submitting your comments, this form will not be saved. Please comment on only one regulation per submission. You may submit comments as many times as necessary.
