OPM and Third-Party Servicers Update; Your Turn to Inform the Department of Ed

We hope that you will take one or more of the opportunities described below to ask questions, share the impacts on students, and generally apprise the Department of practical information about the use of OPM’s and Third-Party Servicers at your institution.

  • Updates on Online Program Management (OPM), including a synopsis of the Department’s listening sessions, what we are hearing from members, and previews of our comment to the Department.

  • Directions on the opportunities to provide feedback and the processes to participate.[...]
