Interim Final Regulations and Request for Comments
The Secretary is amending the Federal Student Aid Program regulations to implement the changes to the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), resulting from the Higher Education Reconciliation Act of 2005 (HERA), Public Law No. 109-171, and other recently enacted legislation. These interim final regulations reflect the provisions of the HERA that affect students, borrowers and program participants in the Federal student aid programs authorized under Title IV of the HEA. Interim final regulations for the two new Title IV grant programs created by the HERA, the Academic Competitiveness Grant Program and the National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent (SMART) Grant Program, are being published in a separate notice in the Federal Register.
