A. Higher Educational Aids Board Policy and Procedure Manual Update

Attached is a copy of a letter that was sent to Presidents or Chancellors and to Financial Aid Administrators in regards to the HEAB Policy and Procedure Manual that has been implemented. This was sent in lieu of a formal agreement. No school representatives have responded to indicate that their institution would not be able to fulfill the expectations outlined in the manual. HEAB continues to work with the Wisconsin Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and others to finalize language related to the "return of funds" which is to be implemented July 1, 2002.

Dear (President/Chancellor and Financial Aid Administrator):

The Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB) Policy and Procedure Manual is a document that was recently written to assist Wisconsin Financial Aid Administrators to effectively administer State Financial Aid Programs. It includes program descriptions and policies, processing procedures, school and student responsibilities, administrative rules, statutes, and more. This document, approved by the Board, includes policies and procedures that are to be followed starting with the 2001-02 academic year.

The manual is available in an electronic format on the HEAB website. The website address is http://heab.state.wi.us. It is expected that administrators at participating institutions will read and review all of the policies and procedures contained in the manual; understand the information contained in the manual; and be able to and agree to follow all the policies and procedures contained within the manual.

If your institution is not able to fulfill the expectations; if you are not able to access the manual on the HEAB website; or if you have any questions please contact me by phone at (608) 264-6181 or by e-mail at jane.hojan-clark@heab.state.wi.us.

Executive Secretary
