IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING REWARD PAYMENTS (SALARY INCREASES AND BONUS PAYMENTS) FOR EMPLOYEES WHO RECRUIT STUDENTS
Effective July 1, 2011, the Higher Education Act (HEA) is prohibiting any merit increase, commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based in any part, directly or indirectly, upon success in securing enrollments or the award of financial aid, to any person or entity who is engaged in any student recruitment or admission activity, or in making decisions regarding the awarding of Title IV, HEA program funds.  As a result, employees cannot be rewarded for enrollment, admissions or financial aid goals, or program completion, retention or graduation rates.  If you have any questions regarding this regulation, please don’t hesitate to contact your HR Service Center Manager.
