reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's

the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed 
information collection request (ICR) that is described below. 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. Please note that 
written comments received in response to this notice will be considered 
public records.
    Title of Collection: Part 601 Preferred Lender Arrangements
    OMB Control Number: 1845-0101
    Type of Review: Extension of an existing collection of information
    Respondents/Affected Public: Individual or households
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 13,674,883
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 3,197,761
    Abstract: Part 601--Institution and Lender Requirements Relating to 
Education Loans is a new section of the regulations governing private 
education loans offered at covered institutions by lenders also 
participating in the FFEL program. These regulations assure the 
Secretary that the integrity of the program is protected from fraud and 
misuse of program funds and places requirements on institutions and 
lenders to insure that borrowers receive additional disclosures about 
Title IV, HEA program assistance prior to obtaining a private education 
loan. These regulations require covered institutions to provide a 
variety of new loan disclosures, disclosures on private loans, for 
institutions to prepare and submit an annual report on the use of 
private loans, and to establish and adopt a code of conduct for 
institutions participation in a preferred lender arrangement. The 
Department, in conjunction with outside entities are submitting the 
Private Education Loan Applicant Self-Certification form for OMB's 
approval. While information about the applicant's cost of attendance 
and estimated financial assistance must be provided to the student, if 
available, the student will provide the data to the private loan lender 
who must collect and maintain the self-certification form prior to 
disbursement of a Private Education Loan. The Department will not 
receive the Private Education Loan Applicant Self-Certification form 
and therefore will not be collecting and maintaining the form or its 
data.

Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance Division, Privacy,
