Student Financial Aid Handbook, 2001-2002. Volume 4: Campus-Based Common Provisions.
Department of Education, Washington, DC. Student Financial Assistance.
The Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), and Federal Work-Study (FWS) programs are called "campus-based" programs because each school is responsible for administering them on its own campus. A school applies for and receives funds direct from the U.S. Department of Education, and the school's financial aid administrator is responsible for ensuring that eligible students receive program funds according to the provisions of the law and regulations. This volume covers the provisions common to the Perkins Loan, FSEOG, and FSW programs. The next three volumes cover each of these programs individually and contain a description of each program. Chapter 1, "Fiscal Procedures & Record Requirements," discusses the reports and records required and the administrative cost allowance. Chapter 2, "Selecting Recipients," reviews general eligibility requirements for students receiving funds under these programs. Chapter 3, "Awarding Campus-Based Aid," discusses need-analysis formulas, resources available, and overawards and overpayments. (SLD)
