Student Federal Financial Aid Information from the Dept. of Education

Student Aid Update From Ed Dept. ? 2 days ago Subject: Federal Student Aid Programs - Hurricane Katrina - Transfers, Deadline Extensions, and Other

Guidance Over the next several days we will issue a series of communications providing guidance to assist students and postsecondary educational institutions, in recognition of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. We are aware that many applicants, students, and borrowers have been impacted by the hurricane, as well as institutions and other program participants. Last year, we published guidance in a Dear Colleague Letter which, until otherwise modified, can be relied upon for this current natural disaster.

 The letter (GEN-04-04) is available on IFAP at http://www.ifap.ed.gov/dpcletters/GEN0404.html
