Similarly, institutions of higher education are eligible to apply for grants under the HSI program, authorized under Title V of the HEA, if they meet specific statutory and regulatory requirements. In addition, an institution that is designated as an eligible institution under those programs may also receive a waiver of certain nonFederal share requirements under the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), the Federal Work Study (FWS), the Student Support Services (SSS) and the Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language (UISFL) Programs. The FSEOG, FWS, and SSS Programs are authorized under Title IV of the HEA; the UISFL Program is authorized under Title VI of the HEA. Qualified institutions may receive these waivers even if they are not recipients of grant funds under the Title III, Part A programs or the HSI program. Special note: To qualify as an eligible institution under the Title III, Part A programs or the HSI program, your institution must satisfy several criteria, including one related to needy student enrollment and one related to average Educational and General (E&G) expenditures for a particular base year. The most recent data available for E&G expenditures is for base year 2003–2004. In order to award FY 2006 grants in a timely manner, we will use the most recent data available. Therefore, we use E&G expenditure threshold data from the base year 2003–2004. In completing your eligibility application, please use E&G expenditure data from the base year 2003– 2004. If you are designated as an eligible institution and you do not receive a new Title III or Title V award in FY 2006, your eligibility for the non-Federal cost share waiver under the FSEOG, the FWS, the SSS, and the UISFL programs is valid for five consecutive years. You will not need to reapply for eligibility until FY 2011, unless you wish to apply for a new Title III or title V grant. TCCUs applying for a FY 2006 new grant or requesting a waiver of the nonFederal cost share, must also apply for eligibility designation in FY 2006. Eligible Applicants: To qualify as an eligible institution under the Title III, Part A programs or the HSI program, an accredited institution must, among other requirements, have an enrollment of needy students, and its average E&G expenditures per full-time equivalent (FTE) undergraduate student must be low in comparison with the average E&G expenditures per FTE undergraduate student of institutions that offer similar instruction. The complete eligibility requirements for the Title III, Part A programs are found in 34 CFR 607.2 through 607.5. These regulations may be accessed by visiting the following Web site: http:// www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/ waisidx_02/34cfr607_02.html. The complete eligibility requirements for the HSI program are found in 34 CFR 606.2 through 34 CFR 606.5. These regulations may be accessed at the following Web site: http:// www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/ waisidx_01/34cfr606_01.html. Enrollment of Needy Students: Under 34 CFR 606.3(a) and 607.3(a), an institution is considered to have an enrollment of needy students if (1) at least 50 percent of its degree students received financial assistance under one or more of the following programs: Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, FWS, and Federal Perkins Loan Programs; or (2) the percentage of its undergraduate degree students who were enrolled on at least a half-time basis and received Federal Pell Grants exceeded the median percentage of undergraduate degree students who were enrolled on at least a half-time basis and received Federal Pell Grants at comparable institutions that offered similar instruction. To qualify under this latter criterion, an institution’s Federal Pell Grant percentage for base year 2003–2004 must be more than the median for its category of comparable institutions provided in the table in this notice. Education and General Expenditures Per FTE Student: An institution should compare its 2003–2004 average E&G expenditures per FTE student to the average E&G expenditure per FTE student for its category of comparable institutions contained in the table in this notice. If the institution’s average E&G expenditures for the 2003–2003 base year are less than the average for its category of comparable institutions, the institution meets this eligibility requirement. An institution’s average E&G expenditures are the total amount it expended during the base year for instruction, research, public service, academic support, student services, institutional support including library expenditures, operation and maintenance, scholarships and fellowships, and mandatory transfers. The following table identifies the relevant median Federal Pell Grant percentages for the base year 2003–2004 and the relevant average E&G expenditures per FTE student for the base year 2003–2004 for the four categories of comparable institutions: 2003–2004 Median Pell Grant percentage Type of institution 2-year 2-year 4-year 4-year 2003–2004 Average E&G expenditures per FTE student 25.1 40.6 25.8 26.8 $8,824 19,272 22,702 35,801 Public Institutions .................................................................................................................................
