    Title: Documents Associated with the Notice of Terms and Conditions 
of Purchase of Loans under the Ensuring Continued Access to Student 
Loans Act of 2008.
    Abstract: As one of several measures intended to address concerns 
about the availability of loans under the Federal Family Education Loan 
(FFEL) Program during the 2008-2009 academic year, the Ensuring 
Continued Access to Student Loans Act of 2008 (ECASLA) provides the 
Department of Education (the Department) with temporary authority to 
purchase student loans from FFEL Program lenders. The documents 
included in this collection set forth the terms and conditions of the 
loan purchase program authorized by the ECASLA and collect the 
information from lenders that is required by the Department to 
administer the program.

Additional Information

    The U.S. Department of Education (Department) requests that OMB 
grant an emergency clearance by June 27, 2008 for Loan Purchase Program 
information collection documents associated with the newly authorized 
authority to purchase loans, as per the Ensuring Continued Access to 
Student Loans Act of 2008 (``ECASLA''):
    1. Master Participation Agreement, with exhibits;
    2. Master Loan Sale Agreement, with exhibits; and
    3. Additional documents forthcoming specifying data intended to be 
collected.
    Section 459A of the Higher Education Act (``HEA''), signed into law 
on May 7, 2008, provides that the Secretary of Education, the Secretary 
of the Treasury, and the Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget must jointly determine the terms and conditions of this newly 
authorized loan purchase program. These information collection 
documents set forth those terms and aid in the administration of the 
program.
    The Loan Purchase Program was established under the HEA by the 
ECASLA. Congress passed this law to remedy market conditions 
threatening the ability of student lenders to make student loans for 
the 2008-2009 academic year. While loans for the academic year can be 
originated as early as May, the bulk of originations occur during the 
period from July through August. To ensure that student lenders are 
able to utilize the Loan Purchase Program, the Documents must be 
reviewed by lenders in advance of final publication of the Notice of 
Terms and Conditions of Purchase of Loans under the Ensuring Continued 
Access to Student Loans Act of 2008. As such, the lending community 
must have final, approved versions of the Documents no later than June 
27, 2008 to ensure that they will be able to utilize the Loan Purchase 
Program in time for the 2008-2009 academic year. The Department thus 
requests emergency clearance because the regular clearance process 
would not enable us to make an OMB-approved set of Documents available 
to lenders seeking to make student loans during the 2008-2009 academic 
year.
    Upon receiving emergency clearance of the Documents, the Department 
will submit the ECASLA Loan Purchase Program documents for regular 
clearance process, including notice of a 60-day public comment period.
