Prison Education Program (PEP): New Obligations
** Post-webinar update/erratum: An institution can be PEP approved with just one off-campus instruction site at a correctional facility; the institution is not required to have a minimum of two sites at a correctional facility as tentatively stated in the webinar. However, the institution is required to secure PEP approval for each of the first two sites where it will deliver a PEP program.

Webinar description: Federal regulations published in October 2022 create new institutional and accreditor obligations for incarcerated individuals' Pell Grant eligibility. This webinar provides preliminary guidance to institutions in advance of incorporating the new regulations into the SACSCOC Substantive Change Policy and Procedures.

Note: The U.S. Department of Education (USDE) has created a Prison Education Program Question and Answers webpage: https://www2.ed.gov/policy/highered/reg/hearulemaking/2009/pep-q-and-a.html
