2009 Negotiated Rulemaking for Higher Education - Team II--Loans–School–Based Loan Issues

Notices of Proposed Rulemaking

On October 28, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register final regulations regarding Institutions and Lender Requirements Relating to Education Loans, to implement requirements relating to education loans that were added to the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA). The Secretary also amends the regulations for Student Assistance General Provisions, the Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins Loan) Program, the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program, and the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program to implement certain provisions of the HEA that involve school-based loan issues and that were affected by the statutory changes made to the HEA by the HEOA. These regulations are effective July 1, 2010.

The Department published in the Federal Register two Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NRPM). Both NPRMs proposed changes to the regulations governing the Title IV student loan programs. One, published July 23, 2009, covered lender and guaranty agency issues. The other, dated July 28, 2009, included school based issues. The deadline for submitting comments to the July 23 NPRM was August 24, 2009 while the deadline for submitting comments to the July 28 NPRM was August 27, 2009.
