Policies and Regulations


Negotiated Rulemaking

Negotiated rulemaking, sometimes abbreviated as "Neg Reg," began in the early 1980s and is currently required under the Higher Education Act (HEA). Under Neg Reg, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) works to develop proposed regulations in collaboration with representatives of the parties who will be affected significantly by the regulations. See the Web pages below for more information about recent Neg Reg activities.
