Office of Postsecondary Education; Solicitation of Third-Party Comments Concerning the Performance of Accrediting Agencies; Correction

On January 24, 2018 we published a notice in the Federal Register soliciting comments in connection with, inter alia, the Department's review of the application of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) for initial recognition and the compliance report submitted by the American Bar Association (ABA), both of which are currently undergoing review for purposes of recognition by the U.S. Secretary of Education. The deadline for comments set forth in that notice was February 16, 2018. On February 22, 2018, we published a notice in the Federal Register extending the public comment period until March 1, 2018 for the submission of comments relating to those two agencies. This notice corrects our earlier statements in those two Federal Register notices about the scope of the public comments.
