Programs

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice of the closing date for institutions to file an
``Application for Approval to Participate in Federal Student Financial
Aid Programs'' (ED Form E40-34P, OMB #1840-0098) to participate in the
Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study, and Federal Supplemental
Educational Opportunity Grant programs for the 1998-99 award year.

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

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) for one or more of the ``campus-
based programs'' for the 1998-99 award year to submit to the Secretary
an ``Application for Approval to Participate in Federal Student
Financial Aid Programs'' and all required supporting documents 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 1998-99 award year is July 1,
1998, through June 30, 1999.

DATES: Closing date: To participate in the campus-based programs in the
1998-99 award year, a currently ineligible institution must mail or
hand-deliver its ``Application for Approval to Participate in Federal
Student Financial Aid Programs'' on or before January 13, 1998. The
application and all the required supporting documents 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. The
application for approval to participate and required supporting
documents delivered by mail must be addressed to the U.S. Department of
Education, Institutional Participation Division, Room 3522, Regional
Office Building 3, 600 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 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 applications for approval to participate
and required supporting documents after the closing date will not be
considered for funding under the campus-based programs for award year
1998-99.
Applications and Required Documents Delivered by Hand. An
application for approval to participate and required supporting
documents delivered by hand must be taken to the U.S. Department of
Education, Institutional Participation Division, Room 3522, Regional
Office Building 3, (GSA Building), 7th and D Streets, SW., Washington,
DC 20407.
The Department 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 application for approval to participate for the
1998-99 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 1998-99 to any currently ineligible institution unless
the institution files its ``Application for Approval to Participate in
Federal Student Financial Aid Programs'' and other required supporting
documents by the closing date. If the institution submits its
application for approval to participate or other required supporting
documents after the January 13, 1998 closing date, the Secretary will
use this application in determining the institution's eligibility to
participate in the campus-based programs beginning with the 1999-2000
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 1998-99 FISAP.
The Secretary wishes to advise institutions that the institutional
eligibility form, ``Application for Approval to Participate in Federal
Student Financial Aid Programs,'' should not be confused with the FISAP
form that institutions were required to submit electronically by
October 1, 1997, in order to be considered for funds under the campus-
based programs for the 1998-99 award year.
