Carlow's "Mercy Service" Day Students Made My Day

Posted by Marty McGough on Sep 21, 2018 2:59:06 PM

I recently moved to a lovely new neighborhood, and the only downside is the longer bus commute. Today, though, I was grateful for the long ride, thanks to twenty or so very talkative Carlow University first-year students who boarded my bus this morning on their way to donate their time to a church downtown for Mercy Service Day, an important part of the university's annual celebration of its Mercy heritage. Students "put down their books and laptops and pick up a paintbrush, a scrub bucket, or a broom" to give an assist to 18 local non-profit agencies.

The College Scorecard Is a Win for Students and Schools Alike

Posted by Marty McGough on Sep 5, 2018 6:21:26 PM

Gainful Employment rule replaced with College Scorecard

Secretary DeVos recently announced that she plans to rescind the Gainful Employment Rule. Gainful employment stipulations apply to degrees and certificate programs offered by for-profit institutions, and to vocational certificate programs at community colleges and other nonprofit institutions. Under the rule, schools would lose federal aid in the form of Pell Grants and student loans if graduates' debt-to-earnings ratio exceeded a certain threshold for programs. The regulations were established in response a Government Accountability Office study that found evidence of fraud and unethical behavior by four of 15 institutions tested across a number of factors.

In place of the Gainful Employment Rule, the DOE will offer more program-level outcomes data through the College Scorecard, a consumer information tool launched by the Obama administration. Additionally, the DOE may also require that institutions disclose on each program’s website information such as completion rates, cost, accreditation status, and whether it meets licensure requirements for the state in which the program is located.
