FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For specific questions related to collection activities, please contact Kashka Kubzdela, 202–245–7377 or email NCES.Information.Collections@ed.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Education (ED), in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), provides the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department’s information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: 2019–20 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:20) Institution Collection. OMB Control Number: 1850–0666. Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 6,073. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 13,577. Abstract: The 2019–20 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:20) is a nationally representative cross-sectional study of how students and their families finance education beyond high school in a given academic year. NPSAS is conducted by the National Center for Education VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 Statistics (NCES) and was first implemented by NCES during the 1986– 87 academic year and has been fielded every 2 to 4 years since. This request is to conduct the 11th cycle in the NPSAS series that will be conducted during the 2019–20 academic year. NPSAS:20 will be both nationally- and staterepresentative. NPSAS:20 also will serve as the base year data collection for the 2020 cohort of the Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:20), a study of first-time beginning postsecondary students that will be conducted three years (BPS:20/ 22) and six years (BPS:20/25) after beginning their postsecondary education. NPSAS:20 will consist of nationally-representative sample undergraduate and graduate students, and a nationally-representative sample of first-time beginning students (FTBs). Subsets of questions in the student interview will focus on describing aspects of the experience of beginning students in their first year of postsecondary education, including student debt and education experiences. This submission covers materials and procedures related to institution sampling, institution contacting, enrollment list collection, and matching to administrative data files as part of the NPSAS:20 data collection. NCES will submit a separate clearance package covering the NPSAS:20 student data collection, including student record data abstraction and student interviews, in the summer of 2019. The materials and procedures are based on those developed for previous institution-based data collections, including NPSAS:16, BPS:12 student record collection, and the 2018 NPSAS Administrative Collection (NPSAS:18–AC). The NPSAS:20 enrollment list collection from institutions will take place from October 2019 through July 2020, the student records collection will take place from February through November 2020, and the student survey data collection will take place from January through November 2020.
