You are here: Guidelines > Information Correction Requests and Appeals

Effective October 1, 2002 the Department of Education will allow any affected person to request the correction of information the Department disseminates that does not comply with applicable OMB and Department of Education information quality guidelines. An affected person is an individual or an entity that may use, benefit or be harmed by the disseminated information at issue.

Most Department information products include the names of knowledgeable staff that can assist users in understanding the information presented, and in determining whether there is an error that warrants action using the correction process described in this section. Users of the Department's information should consult with the contact person listed in the product before filing a formal request for correction.
