On December 7, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 64059-64062) a notice inviting applications for eligibility for the programs authorized under Titles III and Title V of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (FY 2010 Eligibility Notice). The FY 2010 Eligibility Notice established a January 6, 2010 deadline date for applicants to apply for designation as an eligible institution under the Title III and Title V programs.

End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


In this notice, the Department announces the reopening of the period for submitting an application for a designation of eligibility. This reopening of the application period applies only to those institutions that intend to apply for new awards in competitions to be announced this fall under the AANAPISI, NASNTI, HSI-STEM, and PBI programs. This limited reopening is intended to ensure that all potential applicants to the AANAPISI, NASNTI, HSI-STEM, and PBI programs have the opportunity to submit applications for eligibility prior to the announcement of these competitions. (While HSI-STEM was not included in the FY 2010 Eligibility Notice, it has been added to this notice due to funds made available by the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act.) If you have already submitted an application for eligibility based on the FY 2010 Eligibility Notice and were designated as eligible, you do not need to resubmit your application. Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: September 13, 2010.


Applications for designation of eligibility must be submitted electronically using the following Web site:​title3and5.

To enter the Web site, you must use your institution's unique eight-digit identifier, i.e., your Office of Postsecondary Education Identification Number (OPE ID Number). Your business office or student financial aid office should have the OPE ID Number. If not, contact the Department using the e-mail addresses of the contact persons listed in this notice under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

You will find detailed instructions for completing the application form electronically under the “Eligibility” link at the following Web site:​programs/​iduestitle3a/​index.html.
