Summary: Federal Register Notice Extending Institutional and Applicant Deadlines

HURRICANE KATRINA INFORMATION - ELECTRONIC ANNOUNCEMENT #2

(09-09-2005)

From: Terri Shaw, Chief Operating Officer, Federal Student Aid


Subject: Federal Register Notice Extending Institutional and Applicant Deadlines


As a result of the extensive damage and disruption caused by Hurricane Katrina, the Department published on September 9, 2005 a Notice in the Federal Register extending student aid institutional reporting and application deadlines summarized in the following chart. (The Federal Register Notice is attached to this announcement).

The Federal Register Notice provides that the extended deadlines apply to (1) institutions and third-party servicers that are located in a federally declared disaster area and that are adversely impacted by Hurricane Katrina, and (2) applicants that are adversely impacted by Hurricane Katrina. However, any institution that, because of the hurricane, is unable to meet any reporting deadline may call the appropriate person or call center. These requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

An impacted institution, third-party servicer, or applicant that cannot meet an extended deadline may request an additional extension by contacting the appropriate person or call center, as specified in the chart. In addition, an impacted institution or third-party servicer that does not meet a current deadline must maintain documentation of the hurricane-related reason that caused it to miss the deadline.
