To truly understand the sector and differentiate among institutions, a classification scheme that focuses on for-profits must include criteria that are different than those used in existing schemes, moving beyond institutional characteristics to look at contextual factors. This report, A New Classification Scheme for For-Profit Institutions, therefore describes a three-level classification framework based on various criteria to offer a framework within which outcomes, policy interventions, and/or program supports can be better targeted.
