Accreditors Will Take Hard Line on Graduation Rates

A new initiative from the Council of Regional Accrediting Commissions will examine four-year colleges and universities with graduation rates of 25% or lower, and two-year schools with 15% or lower graduation rates, more closely.

The plan, which follows the collapse of ITT Tech for its alleged fraudulent recruitment and degree-granting practices, seeks to aid the federal government in preserving access to its $130 billion student tuition aid programs for institutions with stronger outputs in completion and employment.
