Draft Gainful Employment Completers List Deadline

The deadline for submitting any necessary corrections to an institution’s Draft Gainful Employment (GE) Completers List is tomorrow, July 28, 2016.

By now you should have made any applicable or necessary corrections to the Draft GE Completers List.  Again, the deadline is tomorrow, July 28, 2016.  The U.S. Department of Education (ED) reminded schools of this deadline in the GE Electronic Announcement (EA) #84, dated July 21, 2016.

In some cases, documentation may be necessary to substantiate the corrections an institution submits.  Documentation is only submitted when, and if, requested by ED. The information related to how an institution submits supporting documentation for corrections to the GE Draft Completers List is detailed in GE Electronic Announcement #83, dated July 15, 2016.

If you receive a request from ED to submit documentation, you will have three (3) business days to submit the supporting documentation.  The attachment to GE EA #83 specifies how to save and encrypt the documentation to ensure students’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is protected.  If you do not submit the supporting documentation in the format instructed by ED, it will result in an automatic denial of the correction request and it could result in a referral to ED’s Program Compliance office for a violation of security of the student’s PII.

The chart attached to GE Electronic Announcement #78, dated May 31, 2016, provides examples of acceptable documentation when needed.  You do not submit the documentation unless requested by ED.

We trust that you have successfully submitted any necessary corrections to your Draft GE Completers List.  Should you have any questions regarding this information, please feel free to contact Customer Service through the Client Solution Center.
