Ford Federal Direct Loan Programs Notice of deadline dates for receipt of applications, reports, and other records for the 2004–2005 award year. ACTION: SUMMARY: The Secretary announces deadline dates for the receipt of documents and other information from institutions and applicants for the Federal student aid programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, for the 2004– 2005 award year. The Federal student aid programs include the Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Family Education Loan, William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan, Federal Pell Grant, PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19423 and Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership programs. These programs, administered by the U.S. Department of Education (Department), provide financial assistance to students attending eligible postsecondary educational institutions to help them pay their educational costs. Deadline and Submission Dates: See Tables A and B at the end of this notice. DATES: Table A—Deadline Dates for Application Processing and Receipt of Student Aid Reports (SARs) or Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs) by Institutions Table A provides deadline dates for application processing, including corrections and submission of signatures, submission of verification documents and, for purposes of the Federal Pell Grant Program, receipt by institutions of SARs or ISIRs. We simplified the deadline dates in Table A by using only three dates for the 2004– 2005 award year. The single date for the submission of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is June 30, 2005, regardless of the method that the applicant uses to submit the FAFSA. September 15, 2005 is the deadline date for the submission and receipt of corrections, changes of addresses or schools, or requests for a duplicate SAR. September 23, 2005 is the deadline date for the submission and receipt of all other documents and materials that are specified in Table A. Table B—Federal Pell Grant Program Submission Dates for Disbursement Information by Institutions Table B provides the earliest submission and deadline dates for institutions to submit Federal Pell Grant disbursement records to the Department’s Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System. In general, an institution must submit Federal Pell Grant disbursement records no later than 30 days after making a Federal Pell Grant disbursement or becoming aware of the need to adjust a student’s previously reported Federal Pell Grant disbursement. In accordance with the regulations at 34 CFR 668.164, we consider that Federal Pell Grant funds are disbursed on the earlier of the date that the institution: (a) Credits those funds to a student’s account in the institution’s general ledger or any subledger of the general ledger, or (b) pays those funds to a student directly. We consider that Federal Pell Grant funds are disbursed even if an institution uses its own funds in E:\FR\FM\13APN1.SGM 13APN1 19424 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 70 / Wednesday, April 13, 2005 / Notices advance of receiving program funds from the Department. An institution’s failure to submit disbursement records within the required 30-day timeframe may result in an audit or program review finding. In addition, the Secretary may initiate an adverse action, such as a fine or other penalty for such failure.

Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Family Education Loan, Federal 
Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Pell Grant, Leveraging 
Educational Assistance Partnership, and William D. Ford Federal Direct 
Loan Programs

ACTION: Notice of deadline dates for receipt of applications, reports, 
and other records for the 2004-2005 award year.

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

SUMMARY: The Secretary announces deadline dates for the receipt of 
documents and other information from institutions and applicants for 
the Federal student aid programs authorized under Title IV of the 
Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, for the 2004-2005 award year. 
The Federal student aid programs include the Federal Perkins Loan, 
Federal Work-Study, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, 
Federal Family Education Loan, William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan, 
Federal Pell Grant, and Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership 
programs.
    These programs, administered by the U.S. Department of Education 
(Department), provide financial assistance to students attending 
eligible postsecondary educational institutions to help them pay their 
educational costs.

DATES: Deadline and Submission Dates: See Tables A and B at the end of 
this notice.

Table A--Deadline Dates for Application Processing and Receipt of 
Student Aid Reports (SARs) or Institutional Student Information Records 
(ISIRs) by Institutions

    Table A provides deadline dates for application processing, 
including corrections and submission of signatures, submission of 
verification documents and, for purposes of the Federal Pell Grant 
Program, receipt by institutions of SARs or ISIRs. We simplified the 
deadline dates in Table A by using only three dates for the 2004-2005 
award year. The single date for the submission of a Free Application 
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is June 30, 2005, regardless of the 
method that the applicant uses to submit the FAFSA. September 15, 2005 
is the deadline date for the submission and receipt of corrections, 
changes of addresses or schools, or requests for a duplicate SAR. 
September 23, 2005 is the deadline date for the submission and receipt 
of all other documents and materials that are specified in Table A.

Table B--Federal Pell Grant Program Submission Dates for Disbursement 
Information by Institutions

    Table B provides the earliest submission and deadline dates for 
institutions to submit Federal Pell Grant disbursement records to the 
Department's Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System.
    In general, an institution must submit Federal Pell Grant 
disbursement records no later than 30 days after making a Federal Pell 
Grant disbursement or becoming aware of the need to adjust a student's 
previously reported Federal Pell Grant disbursement. In accordance with 
the regulations at 34 CFR 668.164, we consider that Federal Pell Grant 
funds are disbursed on the earlier of the date that the institution: 
(a) Credits those funds to a student's account in the institution's 
general ledger or any subledger of the general ledger, or (b) pays 
those funds to a student directly. We consider that Federal Pell Grant 
funds are disbursed even if an institution uses its own funds in

[[Page 19424]]

advance of receiving program funds from the Department. An 
institution's failure to submit disbursement records within the 
required 30-day timeframe may result in an audit or program review 
finding. In addition, the Secretary may initiate an adverse action, 
such as a fine or other penalty for such failure.

\1\ The deadline for electronic transactions is 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) on the deadline date. Transmissions
  must be completed and accepted by 12 midnight to meet the deadline. If transmissions are started before 12
  midnight but are not completed until after 12 midnight, those transmissions will not meet the deadline. In
  addition, any transmission picked up on or just prior to the deadline date that is rejected may not be
  reprocessed because the deadline will have passed by the time the user gets the information notifying him/her
  of the rejection.
\2\ The date the ISIR/SAR transaction was processed by CPS is considered to be the date the institution received
  the ISIR or SAR regardless of whether the institution has downloaded the ISIR from its SAIG mailbox.
\3\ Although the Secretary has set this deadline date for the submission of verification documents, if
  corrections are required, deadline dates for submission of paper or electronic corrections and, for a Federal
  Pell Grant, the submission of a valid SAR or valid ISIR to the institution must still be met. An institution
  may establish an earlier deadline for the submission of verification documents for purposes of the campus-
  based programs, the FFEL Program, and the Federal Direct LoanProgram.
\4\ Students completing verification while no longer enrolled will be paid based on the higher of the two EFCs.

\1\ The deadline for electronic transactions is 11:59 p.m. on September 30, 2005. Transmissions must be
  completed and accepted by 12 midnight to meet the deadline. If transmissions are started before 12 midnight
  but are not completed until after 12 midnight, those transmissions will not meet the deadline. In addition,
  any transmission picked up on or just prior to the deadline date that is rejected may not be reprocessed
  because the deadline will have passed by the time the user gets the information notifying him/her of the
  rejection.
\2\ Applies only to students enrolled in clock-hour and nonterm credit-hour educational programs.
Note: The COD System must accept origination data for a student from an institution before it accepts
  disbursement information from the institution for that student. Institutions may submit origination and
  disbursement data for a student in the same transmission. However, if the origination data is rejected, the
  disbursement data is rejected.
