(b) To reimburse any former student of a for-profit postsecondary institution that has terminated operations on or after September 1, 2017, for the cost of obtaining such student’s student records;
(c) To reimburse the University of Nebraska for reasonable expenses directly associated with the storage and maintenance of academic records pursuant to sections 85-173 and 85-174 of those students adversely affected by termination of operations by a for-profit postsecondary institution; and

(2) No claim shall be allowed unless the claim is submitted within one year after the termination of operations by the for-profit postsecondary institution and there are sufficient funds available in the Guaranty Recovery Cash Fund to pay the claim.
