Summary: The Campus-Based Reallocation Form is due to the Department by August 23, 2002.
Reference: Volume 4 of the Student Financial Aid Handbook
The Campus-Based Reallocation Form (E40-4P) is now available. This form is used in the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work-Study (FWS), and Federal Perkins Loan programs (the campus-based programs) to release unexpended portions of your 2001-2002 allocations, or to request supplemental 2002-2003 FWS funds for community service jobs. This letter is written in a question-and-answer format to provide the information you need.
Questions & Answers
Do I need to complete the Reallocation Form?
You need to complete the Reallocation Form if you meet either of the two criteria below:
1. If you do not intend to spend your school's entire 2001-2002 allocation in any of the three campus-based programs; or
2. If you would like to request supplemental 2002-2003 FWS funds to pay students in community service jobs (not for any other purpose), and:
a. Your school spent at least 5% of its total 2001-2002 FWS federal funds to compensate students employed as reading tutors of children or in family literacy activities as part of your community service activities, and
b. Your school has an FWS fair share shortfall as shown on line 28 of its 2002-2003 final funding worksheet which is provided with your tentative allocation letter.
Why is this form so important to the campus-based programs?
Without this information we would be unable to reallocate unexpended funds from the 2001-2002 award year as supplemental allocations for the 2002-2003 award year under the campus-based programs. We only have authority to reallocate 2001-2002 award year funds to schools until September 30, 2002. It is important that you provide this information because many students are in need of these funds to attend school. Any unexpended 2001-2002 funds not released at this time through this reallocation process will revert to the U.S. Treasury.
Where do I obtain the Reallocation Form?
The Reallocation Form can be found on the FISAP on the Web site at cbfisap.sfa.ed.gov. To login to the web site you will need a valid Department of Education Federal Student Aid PIN and TG number for the campus-based programs. Once the FISAP on the Web is displayed for the 2003-2004 application year, the Reallocation Form is accessible through the “Setup” option on the top navigation bar. Select the Reallocation Form link from the “Setup” window to display the Reallocation Form.
Where can I get instructions for the Reallocation Form?
Instructions for the Reallocation Form can be accessed through the “Help” option on the top navigation bar. From there, go to the “Contents” tab on the left hand menu, select “Setup” and then “Setup – Reallocation Form” to view the Reallocation Form instructions.
When is the Reallocation Form due?
The Reallocation Form is due to the Department by midnight, Eastern time, on August 23, 2002.
How do I submit the Reallocation Form and how am I assured that the Department has received my Reallocation Form?
