Subject: Electronic Announcement Posted - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for Foreign Institutions

In a July 15, 2010 Electronic Announcement on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, Federal Student Aid announced the submission of a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for publication in the Federal Register. The NPRM addresses issues related to the participation of foreign schools in the Title IV student aid programs.

It is expected that this NPRM will be published early in the week of July 19, 2010. However, a draft copy is available now on the Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education Web site at the following address:

After the NPRM is posted in the Federal Register, it will be available on the IFAP Web site. We will notify you of its availability.
