As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues, the headlines probably have been piling up faster than you can read them. As experts in Title IV compliance, we wanted to share with you some recent developments that you’ll find useful.

  • As shared by our friends at NASFAA, bills were introduced in the U.S. Senate and House that would address some Title IV concerns.
  • ED provided a guidance for the interruption of studies related to coronavirus, as well as an made an announcement on Federal Work-Study community service waiver requests.
  • The Department of Education (ED) issued a letter providing a limited exemption on site visits for audits.
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs shared guidance on the impact to GI Bill benefits if institutions close or move courses online.

We know your families and students are deservedly at the top of your list of concerns and the barrage of announcements and updates can get buried, so please reach out if you have any Title IV questions.
