Summary: Review/Change Your Mailing List Address On-LinePosted July 6, 2001
Subject: Review/Change Your Mailing List Address On-Line
For many years we have kept a special mailing list for "General" (GEN) Dear Colleague/Dear Partner letters and publications. To review the mailing address(es) that we had on file, or to make a change to your school's mailing address(es), you had to contact us by phone or fax. Now you can review and change your school's address(es) using the Application for Approval to Participate in Federal Student Financial Aid Programs (E-APP).
Our E-APP web page (at http://eligcert.ed.gov) collects addresses for the main campus, branch campuses, and additional location campuses of each participating school. These addresses are required for participation in the Student Financial Aid programs. Your school is legally required to notify us if the official address for its main, additional location or branch campuses changes.
Beginning in mid-July, we will mail the 2001-2002 Student Financial Aid Handbook (and future publications) to the contact person and address you report in Question 13 on the E-APP. (If you have not reported a contact person for mailings in Question 13, we will use the address that you reported for your Financial Aid Administrator.) While this is the first time that we have used the on-line address list to mail the Handbook, this address list has already been used to mail the 2001-2001 Federal School Code List and several other publications.
If you're confident that the address given in Question 13 (or the default address) is where you want to receive mailings, you don't need to do anything further. The 2001-2002 Handbook will be mailed to those addresses beginning the week of July 16th.
If you would like to review this address, change this address, or add additional mailing addresses (for additional school locations), please follow the attached instructions. We will continue to update the mailing list through the month of July and will automatically mail the 2001-2002 Handbook to new or changed mailing addresses.
We hope that this on-line tool will make it easier for you to review and customize your school's mailing subscription. If you have questions or would like to give us feedback on this service, please contact us at email@example.com
NOTE: If you are with an association or other organization that is not listed in the E-APP system, please continue to let us know of any address changes by fax (202/205-0657) or e:mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
