Eoi exams and college admission
EOI Exams and College Admission EOI and Select Federal Regulations

  • A student who does not successfully complete the required number of EOI exams and is not a high school graduate, but whose high school class has graduated is eligible for admission into community colleges using policy section 3.9.6.C.2 [ Adult Admission]

  • The Council on Instruction (COI) Admission/Retention/Transfer (ART) committee recognizes that students in some areas of the state may have limited access to community colleges due to geographical location

  • The consensus of the COI ART committee for regional and research institutions is that these institutions may admit students who do not successfully complete the required number of EOIs via:

    • The alternative admission category [institutions may admit up to 8 percent of freshman or 50 freshman, whichever is higher, who do not meet regular admission criteria]; OR

    • The president may request to the Chancellor an exception to policy 3.9.4.A1 [research] or 3.9.4.B1 [regional].

NOTE: In addition to students being admitted under the parameters detailed above, it is also understood that these students will have participated in the ACT or SAT and be admitted consistent with the 3.19 Assessment and 3.20 Remediation policies, and will have meet curricular and performance requirements, except as allowed under the 3.9.6.B Alternative Admission policy for the regional and research universities.

Gainful employment program requirements
Gainful Employment Program Requirements EOI and Select Federal Regulations

  • The U.S. Department of Education released two sets of final regulations for career college programs.

    • The first set of regulations effective July 1, 2011 (issued October 28, 2010) imposes new reporting and disclosure requirements for gainful employment programs, as well as a new notice and approval process for creation of these programs.

    • The second set of regulations (issued June 13, 2011) requires these programs adequately prepare students for gainful employment or risk losing access to federal student aid. These “debt measures” are effective July 1, 2012. The first year a program could lose aid access is 2015.

COSA Presentation 12 January 2012


What do the regulations require
What do the Regulations Require? EOI and Select Federal Regulations

  • Under the new regulations, programs must satisfy at least one of three tests to remain eligible for Title IV aid:

    • At least 35% of former students are repaying their loans (shown if a loan is paid in full, the balance is reduced by at least $1, the student is on track for public service forgiveness, or the student is making income-based payments)

    • Estimated annual loan repayment of a typical graduate will not exceed 12% of his/her total earnings

    • Estimated annual loan repayment of a typical graduate will not exceed 30% of his/her discretionary income

(These tests are administered on a program-by-program basis and calculated on an October 1 to September 30 fiscal year. Results must be disclosed per 34 C.F.R. §668.6(b)(1)(v))

How does an institution identify if its programs satisfy the tests
How Does an Institution EOI and Select Federal RegulationsIdentify if its Programs Satisfy the Tests?

  • Institutions generally will not have access to all data necessary to independently calculate whether the tests have been satisfied. Rather, the Department of Education will perform calculations based on information submitted by the institution through the National Student Loan Data System and median incomes obtained from the Social Security Administration.

  • The Department of Education’s calculations will be forwarded to schools. Institutions may verify the list of students submitted to the Social Security Administration, but may not access individual earnings data.

  • Institutions may challenge the Department of Education’s calculations through use of earnings from state-sponsored data systems, an appropriately-conducted institutional survey, and Bureau of Labor statistics.

What if all three tests are failed
What if All Three Tests are Failed? EOI and Select Federal Regulations

  • Failure of all three tests in a single year results in additional required disclosures to students explaining the amount by which the program failed the tests and the actions planned to improve program performance.

  • Failure of all three tests in two consecutive years or two years of a three-year period results in required warnings to students that their debts may be unaffordable and the program may lose Title IV eligibility.

  • Failure of all three tests in three years of a four-year period results in ineligibility for Title IV aid and a prohibition from reapplying for Title IV aid for at least three additional years.
