Topeka's Bryan College, 2 other Kansas schools, risk losing federal student aid funding

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The U.S. Department of Education released its first-ever list of programs and institutions that failed accountability standards for a new "Gainful Employment Rule."

The Gainful Employment Rule requires schools to provide their students with an education adequate enough for them to pay their college loans back.

The Department of Education says more than 800 programs failed the Department's standards, including three in Kansas.

Bryan College in Topeka, Brown Mackie College in Salina and Wichita Technical Institute all failed.

To be considered a failing program, its graduates must have annual loan payments that do not exceed 12% of their total earnings.

Schools that fail risk losing federal student aid funding.
