Federal Regulation

The federal government is one of the most important forces affecting higher education in the United States. Billions of dollars in student aid flow to colleges, universities, and other institutions every year.

Federal policies have a profound impact on how students receive higher education, how they pay for it, and how schools are held accountable when they fail to deliver.

Student Defense works to improve federal policies through multiple avenues including litigation, public advocacy, and direct engagement with the federal agencies that write and enforce these vital regulations.
