Enrolling bonus still out of bounds (United States)

The US Court of Appeals has upheld a federal rule barring for-profit institutions from paying recruiters bonuses linked to the number of students they enrol. The court ruled that the Department of Education regulations on the practice, instigated in 2011, were consistent with the Higher Education Act of 1965, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. But it ordered the department to provide details of the effect the rule had on minority recruitment and to clarify whether it had justified eliminating recruiter bonuses based on students successfully completing programmes. The Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities, which challenged the law, says in a statement that it “looks forward to working with the department to help prepare reasonable regulatory changes that best serve students”.
