A report is presented on hearings conducted by the House Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act and related measures. Hearings concern the student financial assistance programs authorized by Title IV. Testimony provided an overview of the student financial aid delivery system and a description of the aggregate federal impact on the financing of postsecondary education. Testimony also described the theory and practice of need analysis and the process for the allocation of the funds to states and individual campuses under the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program, the College Work-Study Program, and the National Direct Student Loan Program. Witnesses described the system for granting eligibility to institutions of higher education to participate in programs authorized by the Higher Education Act, particularly the student financial assistance programs. Other topics addressed include the impact of federal student financial assistance programs on the pricing policies of the private and public institutions of postsecondary education, and recommendations made by a number of postsecondary education associations that students attending postsecondary education institutions less than half time be made eligible for federal student financial assistance. The impact of the federal student financial assistance programs at independent liberal arts colleges was also discussed. (SW)
