DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Annual Notice of Interest Rates of Federal Student Loans Made 
Under the Federal Family Education Loan Program

AGENCY: Federal Student Aid, Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On January 25, 2013, the Chief Operating Officer for Federal 
Student Aid in the U.S. Department of Education published in the 
Federal Register (78 FR 5433) a notice announcing the interest rates 
for the period July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013, for certain loans 
made under the Federal Family Education Loan Program. We correct two of 
the charts in that notice.

DATES: Effective March 22, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On page 5434 we correct Chart 1 to read as 
follows:

 CHART OMITTED -- SEE PDF FILE

  Immediately following the chart we add:

    "Note: The FFEL Program loans represented by the second row of the 
chart were only made to "new borrowers" on or after July 23, 1992."
    We corrected the margin column for what were the second, third, and 
fourth rows (now the third, fourth, and fifth rows) to read 3.10 
percent, rather than 3.25 percent. The total rate column reflects the 
margin rate changes.
    We added a sixth row, to differentiate between two cohorts of 
"converted" variable-rate loans that were originally fixed-rate loans 
with rates that began at 8 percent, but increased to 10 percent after 4 
years of repayment.
    We added a cohort column, consistent with other charts in the 
notice, to provide additional specificity as to when the FFEL Program 
loans represented in the chart were made.
    On page 5434 we correct Chart 2 to read:

 CHART OMITTED -- SEE PDF FILE

    We corrected the maximum rate column for the second row from 8.25 
percent to 9 percent.
    The Note following Chart 2 in the interest rate notice is correct, 
and we do not republish it here.
    As a reminder, a dagger following a date in the cohort fields 
indicates that the trigger for the rate to apply is a period of 
enrollment for which the loan was intended either "ending before" or 
"beginning on or after" the date in the cohort field.
