Correction

In the notice of terms and conditions of purchase of loans under the Ensuring Continued Access to Student Loans Act of 2008, published July 1, 2008 (73 FR 37422), make the following correction:

On pages 37449 and 37450, Appendix D is removed and replaced with Appendix D, attached.

Extension of Deadline: The Notice of Terms and Conditions announced the terms and conditions that govern the Loan Purchase Commitment Program (Loan Purchase Program Terms and Conditions) and the Loan Participation Purchase Program (Loan Participation Purchase Program Terms and Conditions) (collectively, the “Terms and Conditions”) established by the Department of Education, the Department of the Treasury and the Office of Management and Budget pursuant to the Ensuring Continued Access to Student Loans Act of 2008.

The Loan Purchase Program Terms and Conditions provided in Appendix B (73 FR 37432) that a “Lender may not sell Eligible Loans to the Department on which the first disbursement was made prior to the date on which the Department receives the Notice of Intent, unless the Department receives the Notice of Intent on or before a date fifteen calendar days after the terms of the Program are published in the Federal Register.” Similarly, the Loan Participation Purchase Program Terms and Conditions provided in Appendix C (73 FR 37447) that the “Eligible Lender may not sell Participation Interests to the Department relating to loans for which the first disbursement was made prior to the date on which the Department receives the Notice of Intent, unless the Department receives the Notice of Intent on or before a date fifteen calendar days after the terms of the program are published in the Federal Register.”

Under these provisions, the Notice of Intent for both programs would have to be received by the Department on or before July 16, 2008 to ensure loans for which the first disbursement was made on or after May 1, 2008 were eligible for the programs. To provide lenders with additional time to submit the Notice of Intent for both programs, the Department, the Department of the Treasury, and the Office of Management and Budget are extending that deadline until July 31, 2008.
