As a small, independent institition, wouldn’t it be nice to have a fully-staffed Compliance Office like the huge private colleges and public intitutions? Think of an entire department filled with highly-skilled and experienced professionals who would oversee Title IV compliance throughout your school – including keeping your policies, procedures, website, catalog and publications compliant; maintaining processing systems to account for changing regulations; monitoring operational efficiency and effectiveness; and providing necessary training. Sounds great, doesn’t it? – but how could a small, independent school afford a compliance team like that that?
