ACE Webinar: Whither HEA Reauthorization?
Published: November 18, 2019

​​Register now for a Dec. 10 ACE webinar exploring whether the Higher Education Act (HEA) will be reauthorized anytime soon.

HEA, the main law that governs federal financial aid and other higher education programs, is supposed to be renewed every five years. But it was last reauthorized in 2008 and has been running on temporary extensions for the past several years while lawmakers start—then stop—the reauthorization process, only to have to begin again every two years when a new Congress is sworn in. 

As 2019 draws to a close and Congress prepares to leave DC for its holiday break, ACE Senior Vice President Terry W. Hartle and Director of Government Relations Jon Fansmith will provide an overview of the prospects for HEA reauthorization, major issues involved with the legislation, and the implications for colleges and universities.

Click here to register for the Dec. 10, 1-1:45 pm (ET) webinar. Email GR@acenet.edu with any questions.

This webinar will be valuable for presidents, provosts, general counsels, government relations and financial aid professionals, and other senior campus leaders charged with understanding and complying with federal statutes, rules, and regulations affecting colleges and universities. It will be free for individuals at ACE member institutions, and will cost $99 for individuals from non-ACE member institutions.
