DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management
Services, Office of Management, invites comments on the proposed
information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction
Act of 1995.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before
August 25, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform
its statutory obligations. The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory
Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that
notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to
submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information
collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of
review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or
reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4)
Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5)
Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or
Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment.
The Department of Education is especially interested in public
comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection
necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this
information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the
estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
(5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on
the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

Abstract: These forms serve as the means by which eligible
borrowers in the FFEL, Direct Loan, and Perkins Loan programs apply for
discharge of their loans based on school closure (FFEL, Direct Loan,
and Perkins Loan program loans), or false certification of student
eligibility (FFEL, and Direct Loan program loans only). The holders of
FFEL, Direct Loan, and Perkins Loan program loans use the information
collected on these forms to determine whether a borrower meets the
eligibility requirements for a closed school or false certification
loan discharge.
