Need for Improved Coordination of Federally Assisted Student Aid Programs in Institutions of Higher Education.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The General Accounting Office examined coordination among federally assisted student financial aid programs including the National Defense Student Loan, the College Work-Study, Educational Opportunity Grant, and Guaranteed Student Loan programs. Eight institutions were visited. The report recommends that the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare require institutions of higher education to establish procedures for coordinating assistance provided under Federal student aid programs which require a showing of financial need with any assistance provided under the Guaranteed Student Loan program and other school-administered aid programs. The Secretary should also monitor implementation of the procedures to preclude awarding assistance in excess of students' financial needs. (Author/CS)
