interested persons are advised that they may obtain information
regarding the amendments to the National Direct Student Loan and
Federal Perkins Loan Programs Directory of Designated Low-Income

that qualify borrowers for teacher cancellation benefits under each of
the loan programs.

amendments to the Directory may be obtained from Systems Administration
Branch, Campus-Based Programs System Division, Office of Postsecondary

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Secretary of Education published a
notice in the Federal Register on January 26, 1998, (63 FR 3789) that
the Directory was available. The Secretary has revised the Directory
due to the opening and closing of schools, school name changes, and the
need for other corrections. These revisions are listed in the
amendments to the Directory.
The procedures for selecting the schools that qualify borrowers for
cancellation benefits are described in the Federal Perkins Loan Program
regulations at 34 CFR 674.53 and 674.54. The Secretary has determined
that for the 1997-98 academic year full-time teaching in a school set
forth in the Directory and the amendments to the Directory qualifies a
borrower for cancellations benefits.
The Secretary is providing the amendments to the Directory to each
institution participating in the Federal Perkins Loan Program.
Borrowers and other interested parties may check with their lending
institutions, the appropriate State or territory educational agency,
regional offices of the Department of Education, or the Office of
Postsecondary Education of the Department of Education concerning the
identity of qualifying schools for the 1997-98 academic year.
The Office of Postsecondary Education retains, on a permanent
basis, copies of all published amendments and Directories.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The amendments to the Directory are
available at (1) each institution of higher education participating in
the Federal Perkins Loan Program, (2) each of the fifty-seven (57)
