SUMMARY: The Secretary invites currently ineligible institutions of
higher education that filed a Fiscal Operations Report and Application
to Participate (FISAP) (ED Form 646-1) in one or more of the ``campus-
based programs'' for the 1996-97 award year to submit to the Secretary
an ``Application for Institutional Participation'' and all documents
required for an eligibility and certification determination.
The campus-based programs are the Federal Perkins Loan Program, the
Federal Work-Study Program, and the Federal Supplemental Educational
Opportunity Grant Program and are authorized by Title IV of the Higher
Education Act of 1965, as amended. The 1996-97 award year is July 1,
1996, through June 30, 1997.

DATE: Closing Date for Filing Application and Required Documents. To
participate in the campus-based programs in the 1996-97 award year, a
currently ineligible institution must mail or hand-deliver its
``Application for Institutional Participation'' on or before January
22, 1996. The application along with all documents required for an
eligibility and certification determination must be submitted to the
Institutional Participation Division at one of the addresses indicated
below.

ADDRESSES: Applications and Required Documents Delivered by Mail. An
institutional participation application and required documents
delivered by mail must be addressed to the U.S. Department of
Education, Office of Postsecondary Education, Institutional

[[Page 66272]]
Participation Division, Room 3522, ROB-3, 600 Independence Avenue,
S.W., Washington, D.C. 20202-5323.
An applicant must show proof of mailing consisting of one of the
following: (1) A legibly dated U.S. Postal Service postmark; (2) a
legible mail receipt with the date of mailing stamped by the U.S.
Postal Service; (3) a dated shipping label, invoice or receipt from a
commercial carrier; or (4) any other proof of mailing acceptable to the
Secretary of Education.
If an application is sent through the U.S. Postal Service, the
Secretary does not accept either of the following as proof of mailing:
(1) A private metered postmark, or (2) a mail receipt that is not dated
by the U.S. Postal Service.
An applicant should note that the U.S. Postal Service does not
uniformly provide a dated postmark. Before relying on this method, an
applicant should check with its local post office.
An applicant is encouraged to use certified or at least first class
mail. Institutions that submit institutional participation applications
and required documents after the closing date will not be considered
for funding under the campus-based programs for award year 1996-97.
Applications and Required Documents Delivered by Hand. An
institutional participation application and required documents
delivered by hand must be taken to the U.S. Department of Education,
Office of Postsecondary Education, Institutional Participation
Division, Room 3522, ROB-3 (GSA Building), 7th and D Streets, S.W.,
Washington, D.C. 20407. We will accept hand-delivered applications
between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (Eastern time) daily, except Saturdays,
Sundays, and Federal holidays. An institutional participation
application for the 1996-97 award year that is delivered by hand will
not be accepted after 4:30 p.m. on the closing date.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the three campus-based programs, the
Secretary allocates funds to eligible institutions of higher education.
The Secretary will not allocate funds under the campus-based programs
for award year 1996-97 to any currently ineligible institution unless
the institution files its ``Application for Institutional
Participation'' and other required documents by the closing date. If
the institution submits its institutional participation application or
other required documents after the closing date, the Secretary will use
this application in determining the institution's eligibility to
participate in the campus-based programs beginning with the 1997-98
award year.
For purposes of this notice, ineligible institutions only include:
(1) An institution that has not been designated as an eligible
institution by the Secretary but has previously filed a FISAP; or
(2) An additional location of an eligible institution that is
currently not included in the Department's eligibility certification
for that eligible institution but has been included in the
institution's 1996-97 FISAP.
The Secretary wishes to advise institutions that the institutional
eligibility form, ``Application for Institutional Participation,''
should not be confused with the FISAP form that institutions were
required to submit electronically as of September 29, 1995, in order to
be considered for funds under the campus-based programs for the 1996-97
award year.
