34 CFR Part 668

RIN: 1840-AC14 and 1840-AB44

Student Assistance General Provisions

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Final regulations.


SUMMARY: The Secretary amends the Student Assistance General Provisions 
regulations to add the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control 
number to certain sections of the regulations. These sections contain 
information collection requirements approved by OMB. The Secretary 
takes this action to inform the public that these requirements have 
been approved and affected parties must comply with them.

EFFECTIVE DATE: These regulations are effective on July 1, 1996.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paula Husselmann or David Lorenzo, 
U.S. Department of Education, 600 Independence Avenue, S.W., (Room 
3053, ROB-3) Washington, D.C. 20202. Telephone (202) 708-7888. 
Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may 
call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-800-877-8339 
between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Final regulations for the Student Assistance 
General Provisions were published in

[[Page 29961]]

the Federal Register on November 29 and December 1, 1995 (60 FR 61424 
[Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act], 61776 [Student Right-to-Know 
Act]). Compliance with information collection requirements in certain 
sections of these regulations was delayed until those requirements were 
approved by OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. OMB approved 
the information collection requirements in the regulations on March 14, 
1996 for the graduation rate portion of the Student Right-to-Know Act 
and Campus Security Act, and March 29, 1996 for the Equity in Athletics 
Disclosure Act. The information collection requirements in these 
regulations will therefore become effective with all of the other 
provisions of the regulations on July 1, 1996.

Waiver of Proposed Rulemaking

    It is the practice of the Secretary to offer interested parties the 
opportunity to comment on proposed regulations. However, the 
publication of OMB control numbers is purely technical and does not 
establish substantive policy. Therefore, the Secretary has determined 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), that public comment on the regulations is 
unnecessary and contrary to the public interest.
