Education Dept. to Create Rule-Making Panel on Student Aid
April 30, 2012
In a notice set to appear in Tuesday's Federal Register, the department announced it would accept comments from the public on a new negotiated rule-making committee. The department is forming the panel in response to a report last fall about organized fraud rings that exploit distance-learning programs to collect student aid. Department officials have been working to crack down on "Pell runners," scam artists who bounce from college to college receiving Pell Grant refunds. The department also plans to propose regulations to streamline campus-based student-aid programs.
