Ford Federal Direct Loan Program; 84.379 Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant Program; 84.408 Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant Program. SUMMARY: The Secretary announces deadline dates for the receipt of documents and other information from applicants and institutions participating in certain Federal student aid programs authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), for the 2014–2015 award year. The Federal student aid programs covered by this deadline date notice are the Federal Pell Grant (Pell Grant), William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan), Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant, and Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant 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. Table A—Deadline Date by Which a Student Must Submit the FAFSA, by Which the Institution Must Receive the Student’s Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) or Student Aid Report (SAR), and by Which the Institution Must Submit Verification Outcomes for Certain Students for the 2014–2015 Award Year Table A provides information and deadline dates for receipt of the FAFSA, corrections to and signatures for the FAFSA, ISIRs, and SARs, and verification documents. For all Federal student aid programs, an ISIR or SAR for the student must be received by the institution no later than the student’s last date of enrollment for the 2014–2015 award year or September 28, 2015, whichever is earlier. As a reminder, a FAFSA must be submitted for the dependent student for whom a parent is applying for a Direct PLUS Loan. The deadline date for the receipt of a FAFSA by the Department’s Central Processing System is June 30, 2015, regardless of the method that the applicant uses to submit the FAFSA. The deadline date for the receipt of a signature page for the FAFSA (if required), correction, notice of change of E:\FR\FM\11JYN1.SGM 11JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 133 / Friday, July 11, 2014 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES address or school, or request for a duplicate SAR is September 19, 2015. Verification documents must be received by the institution no later than 120 days after the student’s last date of enrollment for the 2014–2015 award year or September 28, 2015, whichever is earlier. For all Federal student aid programs except for (1) Direct PLUS Loans that will be made to parent borrowers, and (2) Direct Unsubsidized Loans that will be made to dependent students who have been determined by the institution, pursuant to HEA section 479A(a), to be eligible for such a loan without providing parental information on the FAFSA, the ISIR or SAR must have an official expected family contribution (EFC) and must be received by the institution no later than the earlier of the student’s last date of enrollment for the 2014–2015 award year or September 28, 2015. For a student who is requesting aid through the Pell Grant, FSEOG, FWS, and Federal Perkins Loan programs or for a student requesting Direct Subsidized Loans, who does not meet the conditions for a late disbursement under 34 CFR 668.164(g), a valid ISIR or valid SAR must be received no later than the student’s last date of enrollment for the 2014–2015 award year or September 28, 2015, whichever is earlier. For a student meeting the conditions for a late disbursement for these programs, a valid ISIR or valid SAR must be received no later than 180 days after the student otherwise became ineligible or September 28, 2015, whichever is earlier. In accordance with 34 CFR 668.164(g)(4)(i), an institution may not make a late disbursement of title IV student assistance funds later than 180 days after the date of the institution’s determination that the student was no longer enrolled. Table A provides that, to make a late disbursement of title IV student assistance funds, an institution must receive a valid ISIR or valid SAR no later than 180 days after its determination that the student was no longer enrolled, but not later than September 28, 2015. Table B—Federal Pell Grant, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant, Direct Loan, and TEACH Grant Programs’ Deadline Dates for Disbursement Information by Institutions for the 2014–2015 Award Year or Processing Year Table B provides the earliest dates for institutions to submit Pell Grant, Iraq VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:23 Jul 10, 2014 Jkt 232001 and Afghanistan Service Grant, Direct Loan, and TEACH Grant disbursement records to the Department’s Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System and deadline dates for an institution’s request for administrative relief if it cannot meet the established deadline for specified reasons. An institution must submit Pell Grant, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant, Direct Loan, and TEACH Grant disbursement records, as applicable, no later than 15 days after making the disbursement or becoming aware of the need to adjust a student’s previously reported disbursement. In accordance with 34 CFR 668.164(a), title IV funds are disbursed on 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. Title IV funds are disbursed even if an institution uses its own funds in advance of receiving program funds from the Secretary. An institution’s failure to submit disbursement records within the required timeframe may result in the Secretary rejecting all or part of the reported disbursement. Such failure may also result in an audit or program review finding or the initiation of an adverse action, such as a fine or other penalty for such failure, in accordance with subpart G of the General Provisions regulations in 34 CFR part 668.

    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.

Table A--Deadline Date by Which a Student Must Submit the FAFSA, by 
Which the Institution Must Receive the Student's Institutional Student

Institution Must Submit Verification Outcomes for Certain Students for 
the 2014-2015 Award Year

    Table A provides information and deadline dates for receipt of the 
FAFSA, corrections to and signatures for the FAFSA, ISIRs, and SARs, 
and verification documents.
    For all Federal student aid programs, an ISIR or SAR for the 
student must be received by the institution no later than the student's 
last date of enrollment for the 2014-2015 award year or September 28, 
2015, whichever is earlier. As a reminder, a FAFSA must be submitted 
for the dependent student for whom a parent is applying for a Direct 
PLUS Loan.
    The deadline date for the receipt of a FAFSA by the Department's 
Central Processing System is June 30, 2015, regardless of the method 
that the applicant uses to submit the FAFSA. The deadline date for the 
receipt of a signature page for the FAFSA (if required), correction,

[[Page 40085]]

address or school, or request for a duplicate SAR is September 19, 
2015.
    Verification documents must be received by the institution no later 
than 120 days after the student's last date of enrollment for the 2014-
2015 award year or September 28, 2015, whichever is earlier.
    For all Federal student aid programs except for (1) Direct PLUS 
Loans that will be made to parent borrowers, and (2) Direct 
Unsubsidized Loans that will be made to dependent students who have 
been determined by the institution, pursuant to HEA section 479A(a), to 
be eligible for such a loan without providing parental information on 
the FAFSA, the ISIR or SAR must have an official expected family 
contribution (EFC) and must be received by the institution no later 
than the earlier of the student's last date of enrollment for the 2014-
2015 award year or September 28, 2015.
    For a student who is requesting aid through the Pell Grant, FSEOG, 
FWS, and Federal Perkins Loan programs or for a student requesting 
Direct Subsidized Loans, who does not meet the conditions for a late 
disbursement under 34 CFR 668.164(g), a valid ISIR or valid SAR must be 
received no later than the student's last date of enrollment for the 
2014-2015 award year or September 28, 2015, whichever is earlier. For a 
student meeting the conditions for a late disbursement for these 
programs, a valid ISIR or valid SAR must be received no later than 180 
days after the student otherwise became ineligible or September 28, 
2015, whichever is earlier.
    In accordance with 34 CFR 668.164(g)(4)(i), an institution may not 
make a late disbursement of title IV student assistance funds later 
than 180 days after the date of the institution's determination that 
the student was no longer enrolled. Table A provides that, to make a 
late disbursement of title IV student assistance funds, an institution 
must receive a valid ISIR or valid SAR no later than 180 days after its 
determination that the student was no longer enrolled, but not later 
than September 28, 2015.

Table B--Federal Pell Grant, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant, Direct 
Loan, and TEACH Grant Programs' Deadline Dates for Disbursement 
Information by Institutions for the 2014-2015 Award Year or Processing 
Year

    Table B provides the earliest dates for institutions to submit Pell 
Grant, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant, Direct Loan, and TEACH Grant 
disbursement records to the Department's Common Origination and 
Disbursement (COD) System and deadline dates for an institution's 
request for administrative relief if it cannot meet the established 
deadline for specified reasons.
    An institution must submit Pell Grant, Iraq and Afghanistan Service 
Grant, Direct Loan, and TEACH Grant disbursement records, as 
applicable, no later than 15 days after making the disbursement or 
becoming aware of the need to adjust a student's previously reported 
disbursement. In accordance with 34 CFR 668.164(a), title IV funds are 
disbursed on 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. Title IV funds are disbursed even if an institution uses its 
own funds in advance of receiving program funds from the Secretary.
    An institution's failure to submit disbursement records within the 
required timeframe may result in the Secretary rejecting all or part of 
the reported disbursement. Such failure may also result in an audit or 
program review finding or the initiation of an adverse action, such as 
a fine or other penalty for such failure, in accordance with subpart G 
of the General Provisions regulations in 34 CFR part 668.
