DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

34 CFR 694

 
Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs

AGENCY:  Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.

ACTION:  Notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY:  This document reopens the comment period for the proposed 
regulations for the Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for 
Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) program. On December 21, 1999 we 
published in the Federal Register (64 FR 71551) a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) proposing new regulations for the GEAR UP program. 
The deadline for comments on the proposed regulations was January 20, 
2000. We are reopening the original 30-day comment period for the 
proposed regulations until February 10, 2000, because the comment 
period occurred in part over the holiday season.

DATES:  We must receive your comments on or before February 10, 2000.

ADDRESSES:  All comments concerning the proposed regulations should be 
addressed to: Rafael Ramirez, Acting Director, GEAR UP, U.S. Department 
of Education, 1990 K Street, NW., room 6107, Washington, DC 20006. If 
you prefer to send your comments through the Internet, use the 
following address: comments@ed.gov. You must include the term GEAR UP 
in the subject line of your electronic message.
