Office of Postsecondary Education; Developing Hispanic-Serving 
Institutions (HSI) Program

ACTION: Notice reopening application deadline for certain applicants.


SUMMARY: The Secretary reopens for a limited purpose the deadline date 
for grant applications under the HSI Program Fiscal Year 2003 grant 
competition. The original deadline date was published in the Federal 
Register on January 29, 2003 (68 FR 4454). Some applicants submitted 
incorrect enrollment data on the Hispanic-Serving Institutions 
Assurance Form in their applications. As a result, the reported data 
indicated that Hispanic students comprised less than 25 percent of 
applicants' enrollment of undergraduate full-time equivalent students, 
less than 50 percent of the applicants' Hispanic students were low-
income individuals, or both. We are reopening the deadline date to 
allow these applicants to resubmit their Hispanic-Serving Institutions 
Assurance Form with corrected enrollment data. This revised data should 
reflect the date that each applicant submitted its original 
application, not current data. In addition, each applicant must submit 
documentation to support any revised enrollment data. The documentation 
should be concise and easily verifiable. Application Deadline: December 
29, 2003.
    Transmittal of Applications: The resubmitted Hispanic-Serving 
Institutions Assurance Form and supporting documentation must be sent 
by hardcopy to: Mr. Carlos Reeder, U.S. Department of Education, 1990 K 
Street, NW., 6th Floor, Washington, DC 20006-8513. Your submittals must 
be postmarked no later than December 19, 2003.
