SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Advisory Committee on Student Financial
Assistance is established under Section 491 of the Higher Education Act
of 1965 as amended by Public Law 100-50 (20 U.S.C. 1098). The Advisory
Committee serves as an independent source of advice and counsel to the
Congress and the Secretary of Education on student financial aid
policy. Since its inception, the congressional mandate requires the
Advisory Committee to conduct objective, nonpartisan, and independent
analyses on important aspects of the student assistance programs under
Title IV of the Higher Education Act. In addition, Congress expanded
the Advisory Committee's mission in the Higher Education Opportunity
Act of 2008 to include several important areas: access, Title IV
modernization, early information and needs assessment and review and
analysis of regulations. Specifically, the Advisory Committee is to
review, monitor and evaluate the Department of Education's progress in
these areas and report recommended improvements to Congress and the
Secretary.
    The Advisory Committee has scheduled this teleconference to
finalize the findings and recommendations of its upcoming report to
Congress and the Secretary of Education, and conduct other business
related to new members.
