Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On November 8, 2012, Strayer Education, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Second Amended and Restated Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement with SunTrust Bank, as administrative agent (the “Credit Facility”) and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated and BMO Capital Markets Corp., as joint lead arrangers and joint book managers, providing for a $100.0 million revolving credit facility and $125.0 million term loan facility, with an option, subject to obtaining additional loan commitments and the satisfaction of certain conditions, to increase the commitments under the Credit Facility by up to $50.0 million in the future.  Each of the revolving portion of the Credit Facility, which includes a letter of credit subfacility of $50.0 million, and the term loan portion of the Credit Facility matures in four years and amends and refinances the Company’s existing $100.0 million revolving credit facility and $100.0 million term loan facility.  The term loan portion of the Credit Facility, commencing March 31, 2013, also includes required quarterly amortization payments in the amount of $781,250 in the case of each payment made during calendar years 2013 and 2014, 0.625% of the aggregate original principal amount of the term loan facility, and $1,562,500 in the case of each payment made during calendar years 2015 and 2016, 1.25% of the aggregate original principal amount of the term loan facility.

Borrowings under the Credit Facility bear interest at LIBOR or a base rate plus a margin ranging from 2.00% to 2.50%, depending on the Company’s leverage ratio.  For the $125.0 million term loan facility, the Company entered into an interest rate swap arrangement that fixes its interest rate on the term loan facility at an effective rate of approximately 3.1%.  In addition, an unused commitment fee ranging from 0.30% to 0.40%, depending on the Company’s leverage ratio, accrues on unused amounts under the revolving portion of the Credit Facility.  The Credit Facility contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, representations, warranties, events of default and remedies upon default, including acceleration and rights to foreclose on the collateral securing the Credit Facility.  In addition, the Credit Facility requires that the Company satisfy certain financial maintenance covenants, including:

·  
a total leverage ratio of not greater than 2.00:1.00;
·  
a coverage ratio of not less than 1.75:1.00; and
·  
a Department of Education financial composite score of not less than 1.5.

The Credit Facility is guaranteed by the domestic subsidiary of the Company and is secured by substantially all of the personal property and assets of the Company and the guarantor.
 
A copy of the Credit Facility is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Credit Facility is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
