The Necessity and Desirability of Including Recipients of Federal Grants Other Than from the Veterans Administration in the 85-15 Ratio Computation. (Prepared in Compliance With Section 305, Public Law 95-202). House Committee Print No. 168.
Veterans Administration, Washington, DC.
This report presents the findings and recommendations of a study by the Veterans Administration concerning the necessity for including in the computation of the 85-15 ratio those students in receipt of grants from federal agencies other than the Veterans Administration. The problems incurred by educational institutions in the implementation of the provisions of the law (section 1673(d), title 38, United States Code) are also examined. The study was conducted from May 15, 1978, through July 24, 1978, by staff members of the Veterans Administration. Officials of 16 schools in California, Georgia, Illinois, New York, and Texas were interviewed. The officials were asked to describe in detail their school's administrative organizations, registration procedures, policies for declarations of majors by students, and the information systems that are used by their schools. This report includes background information on the 85-15 ratio rule, the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program (BEOG), and the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program (SEOG). Based on the findings and conclusions of the study, it is recommended that the law be amended to rescind the requirement that recipients of BEOG and/or SEOG benefits shall be considered in computing 85-15 ratios. Appendices included the revised DVB circular 20-76-84; the interview schedule; and student, veteran, BEOG, and SEOG enrollment data for the educational institutions visited during the study. (SW)
