Participation Links - Programs

  • Default Management

    The website provides the most recent official FFEL and Direct Loan cohort default rates for schools along with the functionality to download the three most recent official default rates for eligible schools, search the online cohort default rate database for specific schools, access the Cohort Default Rate Guide or browse statistics related to the rates. The website also provides other valuable information for schools including links to default prevention tools and tips, press releases, NSLDS links, FAQs and more. Data Managers and Students may also find helpful information on this website.

  • Experimental Sites

    This is the Department's "field-test" for changes to Title IV statute and regulations. Schools may apply to the Initiative for exemptions to specific requirements governing student aid delivery in an attempt to improve student services and administrative procedures. As schools conduct these "experiments", the Initiative evaluates their success and provides the Department with suggestions on how financial aid policies could be streamlined and simplified.

  • Quality Assurance Program

    For more than 15 years, QA schools have shared "results from the lab" and helped develop Tools for Schools, including new online self-assessments to enhance the management of student aid delivery. QA Member Schools that apply and are accepted for QA membership are granted regulatory relief from activities usually required to verify student aid applicant information. In return, schools share their effective practices for the benefit of the entire Title IV community. Visit this site for more information.

  • Total and Permanent Disability

    The Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) website is designed to help student loan borrowers or TEACH Grant recipients, loan holders, and physicians locate the various information, applications, publications, or resources that they may need to apply for or understand the process of total and permanent disability discharges for Federal Student Aid Title IV programs.
