The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, Subpart C, Section 600.30 requires that all postsecondary institutions that receive federal student aid inform the U. S. Department of Education of the name and address of locations other than the main campus at which it offers at least 50% of an educational program and the percentage of the educational program that it provides at each location.

The University of Florida is working to ensure full compliance with this regulation. Failure to comply could result in the loss of federal funding for financial aid programs and millions of dollars in penalties to the university.

Currently, University of Florida students receive over $100 million in federal student aid. To ensure that we report all applicable off-site programs, each department is asked to report, on the enclosed form, all educational programs currently offered which allow at least 50% of instruction to take place on a site other than the main campus located in Gainesville, Florida. Please make as many copies as needed of the enclosed form and return it by February 15, 1997 to the Office for Student Financial Affairs, ATTENTION: Elaine Stuckman, S107 Criser Hall, PO Box 114025, Gainesville, FL 32611.

In addition, when creating future educational programs which will offer off site instruction, please remember to notify the Office for Student Financial Affairs using the enclosed form.

Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Elaine Stuckman, Associate Director at 392-1271 at the address listed above.
