Notice of the 2002-2003 Award Year Deadline Dates for Campus-
Based Institutions

SUMMARY: The Secretary announces the 2002-2003 award year deadline 
dates for institutions to submit various funding and waiver requests 
and documents under the campus-based programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The deadlines provided in this notice are 
for requesting funding or waivers for the three programs that are 
collectively known as the campus-based programs. The three programs are 
the Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study (FWS), and Federal 
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) programs.
    The Federal Perkins Loan Program encourages institutions to make 
low-interest, long-term loans to needy undergraduate and graduate 
students to help pay for their cost of education.
    The FWS Program encourages the part-time employment of needy 
undergraduate and graduate students to help pay for the cost of their 
education and to involve the students in community service activities.
    The FSEOG Program encourages institutions to provide grants to 
exceptionally needy undergraduate students to help pay for their cost 
of education.
    The Federal Perkins Loan, FWS, and FSEOG programs are authorized by 
parts E and C, and part A, subpart 3, respectively, of Title IV of the 
Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.
    Throughout the year, we will provide additional information 
regarding the individual deadline dates listed in this notice via the 
Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) web site: http://
    Deadline Dates: The following table provides the deadline dates for 
the campus-based programs for the 2002-2003 award year. Institutions 
must meet the established deadline dates to ensure consideration for 
funding or a waiver, as appropriate.
