SUBJECT: Ordering bulk quantities of 2001-2002 Application Material

Dear Partner

We expect to begin distributing the 2001-2002 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in Mid-October. Our Web-based Bulk Publication Ordering System (BPOS) is now available for ordering supplies of the 2001-2002 FAFSA and other application materials listed below. You can access the system from our “Information for Financial Aid Professionals” (IFAP) web site at www.ifap.ed.gov by selecting

Bulk Publication Ordering Systemfrom the list of links on the left-hand side of the IFAP main page. Please remember that you will need your school's OPEID number to place an order.

2001-02 Application Materials


The 2001-02 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in English and Spanish (both will be available in mid-October).


We will ship the FAFSAs as quantities arrive from the printer, sequenced by the dates that orders were placed (rather than by geographic region). You will be able to check the Bulk Publication Ordering System Web site to see when your order was shipped. Once it is shipped, please allow six working days for delivery.


The Student Guide: A 36-page booklet that gives comprehensive information on our student assistance programs, application procedures, eligibility requirements, etc. It is aimed at college students and parents. We expect to begin shipping Student Guides in early November.


Funding Your Education:
A 20-page booklet that provides a more abbreviated version of the information in The Student Guide. It is intended primarily for high school students. We expect to begin shipping Funding Your Education in early November.


(You may view the 2000-2001 versions of The
Student Guide and Funding Your Education by clicking on their titles in this sentence.)


Web Site Brochure: This brochure promotes three web sites we think will be particularly useful to students:

-www.fafsa.ed.gov for FAFSA on the Web.

-www.ed.gov/studentaid, which contains the Student Guide, Funding Your Education, and numerous links to other information resources, and

-www.pin.ed.gov, which students can use to request a Personal Identification Number (PIN). The PIN can be used as an electronic signature for a variety of Internet transactions, including FAFSA, Renewal FAFSA, and Corrections on the Web, and for accessing the National Student Loan Data System.

This year, we are again asking for your help in encouraging students to make use of our electronic informationand services. We would appreciate your ordering supplies of this brochure, making it available to your students, and encouraging them to take advantage of Student Financial Assistance web services. A Portable Document Format (PDF) file of this Brochure appears at the bottom of this Announcement. It can be viewed with version 3.0 or greater of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software.


Drug Convictions May Affect Your Student Aid (2001-02): A single-sheet brochure explaining how drug-related convictions may affect a student's eligibility for financial aid.

Thank you for making these materials available to students who may need financial assistance to continue their education.

Sincerely,


Dena Bates
