The U.S. Department of Education recently released its 519-pages of federal regulations covering accreditation, taking effect July 2020, while the House Education and​ Labor Committee introduced a new version of the Higher Education Act (HEA) — last authorized in 2008 — called the College Affordability Act.

If you’re struggling to make sense of it all, we invite you to join this webinar moderated by Dr. Terry Hartle, Senior Vice President for Government and Public Affairs at the American Council on Education. Hear from leaders in accreditation, public education policy, and members of the federal Negotiated Rule-making Committee on how such legislation may impact both institutions and the accrediting bodies that serve them.

Our expert panel will share their perspectives on:

  1. the new accrediting regulations and what institutions can expect to see in 2020 and beyond
  2. the changes accrediting bodies are making right now and why
  3. the future of the College Affordability Act and its implications for colleges and universities
