Dear Colleague:

We have recently published in the Federal Register seven Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRMs) that relate to the Title IV Federal student aid programs. All of these NPRMs have been posted, in both text and 'pdf' format, to our "Information for Financial Aid Professionals" (IFAP) web site at
ifap.ed.gov. If you have not already accessed and printed out these documents, we urge you to do so and to provide us with your comments. Each of the NPRMs has a specific deadline date and website address for submission of comments.

The seven NPRMs, their publication date, and their comment period end date are listed at the end of this letter.

Once again, we urge you to provide us with your comments on these important proposed rules and we thank you for your continued support of the Title IV student assistance programs.

Sincerely,

A. Lee Fritschler
Assistant Secretary for Postsecondary Education
