    The Department of Education (ED) today released a package of measures it says are designed to enhance higher education accreditation, part of the administration’s push to make accreditors focus more heavily on student outcomes when evaluating colleges and universities. As you know, accrediting agencies must meet certain federal criteria in order for the institutions they accredit to be eligible to receive federal student aid. ED is responsible for periodically deciding whether accreditors are meeting those criteria.
