Update: House Approves Bill to Create Higher Education Accreditation Ombuds

On Thursday, the House of Representatives approved a bill that would toughen regulation of the student loan industry and simplify the process of applying for federal financial aid, among many other things. The House bill (H.R. 4137), known as the College Opportunity and Affordability Act, encompasses a broad range of issues and programs, and includes the creation of a new federal Ombudsman to intervene in disputes related to accreditation.
