National Journal;1/5/2008, Vol. 40 Issue 1, p40
The article focuses on the contention between for-profit and traditional colleges over the rules of student-aid programs under the Higher Education Act in the U.S. The rules cover billions of dollars in funding, the principles of academic integrity and access to postsecondary education. Two points of contention are whether nonprofit colleges should be permitted to reject transfer credits from vocational schools based on their status and whether for-profits should have access to federal funds.
