Guidance Interpreting the Provisions of Public Law 100-503, the 
Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, 54 FR 25818 (June

of the renewal of the computer matching program between the U.S. 
Department of Education (ED) (the recipient agency) and the U.S. 
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) (the source agency). After the ED 
and VA Data Integrity Boards approve a new computer matching agreement 
(CMA), the computer matching program will begin on the effective date 
as specified in the CMA and as indicated in paragraph 5 of this notice.
    In accordance with the Privacy Act and applicable OMB guidance, the 
following information is provided:
    1. Names of Participating Agencies.
    The U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of 
Veterans Affairs.
    2. Purpose of the Match.
    The purpose of this matching program between ED and VA is to verify

States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard; and (B) was 
released under a condition other than dishonorable.'' (20 U.S.C. 
1087vv(c)(1)). Under section 480(d)(1)(D) of the HEA, an applicant who 
is a veteran (as defined in section 480(c)(1)) is considered an 
independent student for purposes of Title IV, HEA program assistance 
eligibility, and therefore does not have to provide parental income and 
asset information to apply for Title IV, HEA program assistance. (20 
U.S.C. 1087vv(d)(1)(D)).
    3. Authority for Conducting the Matching Program.
    ED is authorized to participate in the matching program under

amended by 64 FR 72383, 72407 (December 27, 1999), and corrected by 65 
FR 11294 (March 2, 2000) and 66 FR 18758 (April 11, 2001)). ED will 
disclose this information to VA pursuant to routine use no. 16, as 
added by the notice correcting this system of records published on 
April 11, 2001 (66 FR 18758). The ED data will be matched against data

Subsystem-VA (38VA21) system of records, consistent with routine use 
no. 21, as added to that system of records by a notice published in the 
Federal Register on June 4, 2001 (66 FR 30049-50).
