SUMMARY: This letter references an Advance Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking that was recently published in the Federal
Register regarding a new draft proposal for improved
oversight in the Federal student aid programs.


Dear Financial Aid Administrator:

Enclosed is a reprint of an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
(ANPRM) that was recently published in the Federal Register. The
ANPRM includes a draft proposal for an initiative designed to
enhance the Department of Education's monitoring and oversight of
institutions that participate in the Title IV student financial aid
programs. The proposal has three components: (1) The Department
would provide relief from administrative burden, particularly to
institutions that have records of outstanding performance in
administering Title IV programs and strong financial responsibility;
(2) The Department would increase its monitoring and oversight of
at-risk institutions; (3) The Department would work to improve the
ability of students to obtain information about the educational
programs they are considering for enrollment.

The ANPRM outlines a series of questions that directly pertain to the
proposal. We welcome any comments and suggestions you may
have regarding these questions or any aspect of the proposal. All
comments and suggestions can be sent to Adam Ochlis, U.S.
Department of Education, 600 Independence Avenue, SW
(Room 4050, ROB-3), Washington, DC 20202 or,
by e-mail, Adam_Ochlis@ed.gov

Sincerely,



David A. Longanecker
