Abstract: The proposed regulations require an institution to report annually for each student who completes a program that leads to gainful employment in a recognized occupation identifier information about student completers, the Classification of Instructional Programs code for each occupational training program, the completion date, and information about the amount of private education loans and institutional financing incurred by each graduate. In addition, the proposed regulations would require the following disclosures on the institution's Web site: the name of each occupational training program and links to the Department of Labor's O-Net site to obtain occupation profile data using a Standard Occupational Classification code, information about on-time graduation rates for students entering the program, cost information (including tuition fees, room and board, and other institutional costs incurred for enrolling in the program), placement rate information for students who completed the program, and the median debt incurred by students who completed the program during the preceding three years. The institution must identify separately the median Title IV, Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) loan debt from the private education loan debt and institutional financing plans.
