Information Collection Request Title: Health Professions Student Loan (HPSL) Program and Nursing Student Loan (NSL) Program Administrative Requirements (Regulations and Policy).
OMB No. 0915-0047—Extension.
Abstract: The statutory authorities for the Health Professions Student Loan (HPSL) Program, as authorized by Public Health Service (PHS) Act sections 721-722, and 725-735, and the Nursing Student Loan (NSL) Program, as authorized by PHS Act sections 835-842, contain a number of recordkeeping and reporting requirements for academic institutions and loan applicants. The applicable regulations for these programs under 42 CFR part 57 details the various requirements (see chart below).
Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The requirements are essential for assuring that borrowers are aware of their rights and responsibilities, academic institutions have accurate records of the history and status of each loan account in order to pursue aggressive collection efforts to reduce default rates, and that academic institutions maintain adequate records for audit and assessment purposes to help the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services safeguard federal funds made through the Federal Capital Contribution (FCC). Academic institutions are free to use improved information technology to manage the information required by the regulations.
Likely Respondents: Financial Aid Directors working at institutions participating in the HPSL and NSL Programs.
Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
