Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
New procedures for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program that must be followed for the 1978-79 academic year are presented. Financial aid administrators must follow these procedures to validate Office of Education selected Student Eligibility Reports. A uniform method of validating both Student Eligibility Reports not selected by the Office of Education and optional data elements is also presented. Background information that will be helpful in understanding the 1979-80 Basic Grant Validation project and examples of instances where validation is not necessary even if the Student Eligibility Report is flagged for validation is provided. Procedures related to making and withholding payment of basic grants and the method by which a financial aid administrator refers cases to the Office of Education, and the validation procedures for schools participating in the alternate disbursement system are discussed. A sample validation form, sample letters sent to students, and materials on edit checks are appended. (SW)
