    Apollo Education Group, Inc. announced today that it has been informed by the U.S. Department of Education that the Department intends to conduct an ordinary course program review of University of Phoenix’s administration of federal student financial aid (Title IV) programs in which the University participates. The review, which is scheduled to commence August 4, 2014, initially will cover federal financial aid years 2012-2013 and 2013-2014, as well as compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and related regulations.​
