Program Reviews

As part of its oversight duties, Federal Student Aid routinely conducts program reviews to confirm that a school meets FSA requirements for institutional eligibility, financial responsibility, and administrative capability. During a program review, reviewers evaluate the school’s compliance with FSA requirements, assess liabilities for errors in performance, and identify actions the school must take to improve its future administrative capabilities.

After completing a program review, Federal Student Aid issues a Final Program Review Determination (FPRD), which is a report that includes each finding identified in the program review report, the school's response, and the Department’s final determination. The FPRD also identifies liabilities, if any, calculated based on the findings of the program review; provides instructions for the payment of liabilities, as appropriate; notifies the institution of its right to appeal the existence and amount of any liabilities identified, as appropriate; and closes the program review, if appropriate. The FPRD may or may not require additional action by the institution.

Future FPRDs will be posted regularly.
