    The HPSL Program provides long-term, low-interest loans to students 
attending schools of medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, 
veterinary medicine, optometry, podiatric medicine, and pharmacy. The 
NSL Program provides long-term, low-interest loans to students who 
attend eligible schools of nursing in programs leading to a diploma in 
nursing, and an associate degree, a baccalaureate degree, or a graduate 
degree in nursing. Participating HPSL and NSL schools are responsible 
for determining eligibility of applicants, making loans, and collecting 
monies owed by borrowers on their outstanding loans. The deferment form 
(HRSA Form 519) provides the schools with documentation of a borrower's 
eligibility for deferment. The Annual Operating Report (AOR-HRSA Form 
501) provides the Federal Government with information from

granting loans but are required to report and maintain program records, 
student records, and repayment records until all student loans are 
repaid in full and all monies due the Federal Government are returned)
