SUMMARY: SFA Satellite Videoconference - December 2, 1999

Dear Partner:

The second in our series of satellite videoconferences this fall is "Reauthorization: New
Requirements, New Opportunities." Our new SFA Universitywill sponsor this live, free of charge program on December 2, 1999 from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

We will examine and explain significant changes to the administration of the Title IV student assistance programs resulting from the last year's reauthorization of the Higher Education Act and the final regulations that have just been published supporting the reauthorization. Discussion will focus on those requirements that most directly affect our school partners:

The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 - HR 6 -- Public Law 105-244
The Negotiated Rulemaking Process
The New SFA Ombudsman Office
Perkins Loans
FFELP and Direct Loans
Pell and Campus Based
Institutional Eligibility
Student Eligibility
Return of the Title IV Aid (Refunds)

You will have a toll-free number to call-in or FAX your questions to our subject-matter experts during this live videoconference. You may also wish to record this videoconference for later use.
