Legislation aims to give students additional protections under the GI Bill, but some provisions could be problematic for institutions.
The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday approved the Protect the GI Bill Act, H.R. 4625, reported Politico.
The legislation aims to give students additional protections under the GI Bill and increase transparency and accountability among education programs that receive Department of Veterans Affairs funding. Schools receiving GI Bill benefits would have to inform prospective students of the cost of attendance, how much their benefits cover, and student outcomes, among other things.
While AACRAO is generally supportive of the bill's goals, we are concerned that some provisions would be problematic for institutions.
