ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study conducted by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) regarding the failure of the Department of Education to notice students eligibility in receiving the federal student grant. It determines the agency's policies in monitoring the eligibility of the students and compares the student loan profile in proprietary and other schools in the country. Findings of the study indicate that the students in proprietary schools are most likely to default on the loans.
