Potential Impact of US DOE Guidance on Education Abroad

On Wednesday, February 15, the U.S. Department of Education’s (DOE) issued Dear Colleague Letter Guidance on “(GEN-23-03) Requirements and Responsibilities for Third-Party Servicers and Institutions

It was updated on Tuesday, February 28, and the public comment period was extended until Thursday, March 30, and the guidance will take effect on Friday, September 1, 2023.

The potential negative impact of this guidance on study abroad cannot be overstated. Therefore, we are urging all our members and the higher education community to take action.
