of its information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department's 
information collection requirements and provide the requested data in 
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: Reaffirmation Agreement.
    OMB Control Number: 1845-NEW.
    Type of Review: A new information collection.
    Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 14,440.

    Abstract: The HEA provides for a maximum amount that a borrower can 
receive per year and in total. If a borrower receives more than one of 
these maximum amounts, the borrower is rendered ineligible for further 
title IV aid (including Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental 
Educational Opportunity Grants, Federal Work-Study, and Teacher 
Education Assistance for Higher Education (TEACH) Grants) unless the 
borrower repays the excess amount or agreed to repay the excess amount 
according to the terms and conditions of the promissory note that the 
borrower signed. Agreeing to repay the excess amount according to the 
terms and conditions of the promissory note that the borrower signed is 
called ``reaffirmation'', which is the subject of this collection.
