2) In chapter 2, on pages 3-46 and 3-47, the formulas under the heading "Nonterm correspondence program-Formula 5A have been revised for clarification. The first formula was changed to reflect proper description of a student and the credit hours they are taking, as well as adding the word "definition" to the program's academic year. In the second formula, the term description has been fixed to reflect eligible correspondence terms, and the word "definition" was also added to the program's academic year.

3) In chapter 2, on pages 3-48, in summarizing formula 5a, references to "clock/credit hours" have been replaced by "credit hours".

4) In chapter, on page 3-50, the existing figures in the example are changed to be the following:

Change sentence: A school must use a promissory note that the Department has approved. In Dear Colleague Letter CB-96-8, dated May 1996, and Dear Colleague Letter CB-93-9, dated July 1993, the Department issued both open-ended and closed-ended approved promissory notes for NDSLs and Perkins Loans.

Add sentences after first paragraph under "Approved Promissory Notes:" If a school uses the July 1993 promissory notes, the school must obtain the borrower's signature for each advance (disbursement) of the loan. If a school uses the May 1996 promissory notes, the school must obtain the borrower's signature only once each award year.

Delete paragraph: If a school uses multiple disbursements on a closed promissory note, the borrower must sign for each advance. If there will be only one disbursement, the borrower's signature at the end of the note is sufficient.

Add sentence: The borrower signs next to the specified amount of the approved loan each time the school awards a new loan. (For July 1993 promissory notes, the borrower must sign the "Schedule of Advances" each time she receives a disbursement.)
