Subject: Deadline Extension – Preorder Paper Copies of 2009-2010 Federal Student Aid Handbook by July 15, 2009

In a May 12, 2009 Electronic Announcement on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, we informed the community of a new process for ordering paper copies of the 2009-2010 Federal Student Aid Handbook. While many schools have already pre-ordered paper copies, we are extending the deadline date to July 15, 2009 to allow those who may have missed the initial deadline the opportunity to place their orders.

Between now and July 15, 2009, a school can pre-order a copy of the entire 2009-2010 Federal Student Aid Handbook with or without Volume 6 through the Web site or by calling 800/394-7084.

After the 2009-2010 Federal Student Aid Handbook volumes are mailed to schools that have placed pre-orders, will have a limited supply of the basic set (Application and Verification Guide and Volumes 1-5) and Volume 6 (for Campus-Based schools) available for additional orders.

We appreciate the suggestions we have received from the community, and thank you for your support as we implement this new ordering method. If you have questions or comments about the information provided in this announcement, e-mail us at
