    This is a knee-jerk response to a normal course of regulatory business in all of higher education.

     

    Ordinary program reviews from US Department of Education [ED] are customary for all schools, colleges, and universities administrating the Title IV financial aid program. Granted, program reviews by ED at for-profits have ramped up in recent years.

     

    Regardless -6.2% after hours does not make sense on this news alone. If these selling shareholders of APOL were nervous about the company's federal compliance, they should have sold at $35 or at least when competitors COCO, ESI, and EDMC were first making headlines on compliance issues.

    Not so. All the for-profits are going to get shut down for corruption. Better get out while you can.
