Dear Colleague:

As you know, during the summer we published in the Federal Register a series of Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRMs) related to the Title IV federal student aid programs. After analyzing the comments that were received from the community on the proposed regulatory changes that were included in the NPRMs, we have now published, in the Federal Register, final regulations for each of the NPRM packages. The seven Final Rule packages that were published on November 1, 2000 are:
