The following is a list of publications that have been developed or are expected to be developed in the near future by the Office of Student Financial Assistance. We are providing this list along with dates when each publication is expected to be released. Information that changed from our last report is highlighted.
We plan to update this list periodically in order to provide more accurate release dates as they become known and would appreciate any comments that you may have in order to improve this list and provide information that is helpful to you. Please send comments directly to one of my staff members at the following email address:
Pamela_Littlejohn@ed.gov. If you have questions about this list, you may contact the Customer Service Call Center at (800) 4ED-SFAP or (800) 433-7327.
There is an added resource to the IFAP Web site that will keep a current listing of SFA publications that schools may order from the call center.
