Self-Evaluation Guide for Institutional Participation in Title IV and Other Federal Programs, 1997-98 and 1998-99. Fourteenth Edition.
National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, Washington, DC.
This guide is intended to assist institutions of higher education as they evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of their administration of financial aid programs and compliance with federal laws and regulations, especially Title IV of the Higher Education Act. The guide goes beyond federal requirements to include other good administrative practices that can minimize incidents of misrepresentation and provide a clear audit trail for every transaction. The question-and-answer format is supported by citations to the appropriate legislation or regulation. Part 1 covers general institutional responsibilities, including policies and procedures, student consumer information, and good practices. Part 2 covers the administration of specific federal programs such as the Pell Grant Program, the Perkins Loan Program, the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program, the Family Education Loan Program, the William D. Ford Direct Loan Program, health professions, scholarships for disadvantaged students, and Bureau of Indian Affairs programs. Part 3 addresses the administration of financial aid, including general fiscal administration, drawing down funds, and cash management. Five appendices comprise Part 4, and include relevant legislative texts and a list of frequently used abbreviations. (DB)
