According to Inside Higher Ed, NACAC is under investigation for allegedly making a deal to “restrain trade among colleges and universities in the recruitment of students.”NACAC's ethics code, known as the Statement of Principles of Good Practice, encourages transparent policies and rules meant to protect students. For example, the statement discourages encouraging students to reply promptly to offers of admission by offering better housing arrangements for freshmen who responded quickly.Student loan debt, default rates worse than thoughtStudent loan default rates are worse than previously thought, according to a study released by the Department of Education.
