Ask Dr. Carter

Why did the U.S. Department of Education make a visit to campus this past May?

The reviewers from the U.S. Department of Education noted during the entrance meeting that JCSU was selected for an On-Site Program Review because the department had not conducted such a review at the University in 20 years! The U.S. Department of Education conducts random program reviews for colleges and universities that administer Title IV funds. The overall purpose of the program review is to evaluate compliance with Title IV of the Higher Education Act (HEA) statute and regulations. The program review is designed to identify liabilities owed to the U.S. Department of Education for errors in compliance and to improve future institutional capabilities. All offices involved in financial aid administration at the University, including but not limited to the Office of Financial Aid, Registrar’s office, Council of Deans, Office of Admissions, and the Business/Finance office were part of the program review.
