Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Programs

ACTION: Notice of the 2011-2012 award year deadline dates for the 
campus-based programs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Secretary announces the 2011-2012 award year deadline 
dates for the submission of requests and documents from postsecondary 
institutions for the campus-based programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study 
(FWS), and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) 
programs are collectively known as the campus-based programs.
    The Federal Perkins Loan Program encourages institutions to make 
low-interest, long-term loans to needy undergraduate and graduate 
students to help pay for their education.

[[Page 5788]]

    The FWS Program encourages the part-time employment of needy 
undergraduate and graduate students to help pay for their education and 
to involve the students in community service activities.
    The FSEOG Program encourages institutions to provide grants to 
exceptionally needy undergraduate students to help pay for their cost 
of education.
    The Federal Perkins Loan, FWS, and FSEOG programs are authorized by 
parts E and C, and part A, subpart 3, respectively, of title IV of the 
Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.
    Throughout the year, in its ``Electronic Announcements,'' the 
Department will continue to provide additional information for the 
individual deadline dates listed in the table under the DEADLINE DATES 
section of this notice, via the Information for Financial Aid 
Professionals (IFAP) Web site at: http://www.ifap.ed.gov.
    Deadline Dates: The following table provides the 2011-2012 award 
year deadline dates for the submission of applications, reports, waiver 
requests, and other documents for the campus-based programs. 
Institutions must meet the established deadline dates to ensure
