This volume discusses the eligibility requirements for student and parent borrowers from federal financial aid programs. It reviews the factors an aid administrator must consider when reviewing a student's application for a loan and outlines the administrator's responsibilities in checking to make sure that recipients qualify for their aid awards. The guide also describes changes made to this edition. The primary changes are the elimination of the paper financial aid transcript, its replacement with the transfer monitoring process, and the new regulations establishing a 3-year conditional period for cancellation of Student Financial Aid (SFA) loans due to total and permanent disability. Some other changes are described. The sections of the volume are: (1) "School-Based Requirements"; (2) "Citizenship"; (3) "NSLDS Financial Aid History"; (4) "Social Security Matches"; (5) "Selective Service"; (6) "Expected Family Contribution"; (7) "Financial Need and Packaging"; and (8) "Overawards and Overpayments."
