AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice of closing date for filing the ``Institutional
Application and Agreement for Participation in the Work-Colleges
Program.''

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Secretary gives notice to institutions of higher education
of the deadline for an eligible institution to apply for participation
in the Work-Colleges Program and to apply for funding under that
program for the 1998-99 award year (July 1, 1998 through June 30, 1999)
by submitting to the Secretary an ``Institutional Application and
Agreement for Participation in the Work-Colleges Program.''
The Work-Colleges Program along with the Federal Work-Study Program
and the Job Location and Development Program are known collectively as
the Federal Work-Study programs. The Work-Colleges Program is
authorized by part C of title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965,
as amended (HEA).

CLOSING DATE: To participate in the Work-Colleges Program and to apply
for funds for that program for the 1998-99 award year, an eligible
institution must mail or hand-deliver its ``Institutional Application
and Agreement for Participation in the Work-Colleges Program'' to the
Department on or before April 24, 1998. The Department will not accept
the form by facsimile transmission. The form must be submitted to the
Institutional Financial Management Division at one of the addresses
indicated below.

ADDRESSES: Applications and Agreements Delivered by Mail. An
institutional application and agreement delivered by mail must be
addressed to Ms. Thomasine Riley, Work-Colleges Program, Institutional
Financial Management Division, U.S. Department of Education, P.O. Box
23781, Washington D.C. 20026-0781. 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 institutional application and agreement 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 institution should note that the U.S. Postal Service does not
uniformly provide a dated postmark. Before relying on this method, an
institution should check with its local post office.
An institution is encouraged to use certified or at least first
class mail. Institutions that submit an institutional application and
agreement after the closing date of April 24, 1998, will not be
considered for participation or funding under the Work-Colleges Program
for award year 1998-99.
Applications and Agreements Delivered by Hand. An institutional
application and agreement delivered by hand must be taken to Ms.
Thomasine Riley, Work-Colleges Program, Campus-Based Financial
Operations Branch, Institutional Financial Management Division,
Accounting and Financial Management Service, Student Financial
Assistance Programs, U.S. Department of Education, Room 4714, Regional
Office Building 3, 7th and D Streets, S.W., Washington, D.C. Hand-
delivered institutional applications and agreements will be accepted
between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (Eastern time) daily, except Saturdays,
Sundays, and Federal holidays. An institutional application and
agreement for the 1998-99 award year that is delivered by hand will not
be accepted after 4:30 p.m. on April 24, 1998.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Work-Colleges Program, the
Secretary allocates funds when available for that program to eligible
institutions. The Secretary will not allocate funds under the Work-
Colleges Program for award year 1998-99 to any eligible institution
unless the institution files its ``Institutional Application and
Agreement for Participation in the Work-Colleges Program'' by the
closing date.
To apply for participation and funding under the Work-Colleges
Program, an institution must satisfy the definition of ``work-college''
in section 448(e) of the HEA. The term ``work-college'' under the HEA
means an eligible institution that (1) is a public or private nonprofit
institution with a commitment to community service; (2) has operated a
comprehensive work-learning program for at least two years; (3)
requires all resident students who reside on campus to participate in a
comprehensive work-learning program and the provision of services as an
integral part of the institution's educational program and as part of
the institution's educational philosophy; and (4) provides students
participating in the comprehensive work-learning program with the
opportunity to contribute to their education and to the welfare of the
community as a whole.
