• Dear Colleague Letter 2003-G-348
– When a student requests that an FFEL
disbursement be sent directly to him or her**,
guaranty agencies must, prior to the
disbursement of funds, access the Department’s
PEPS Database and reconfirm that the
institution the student is to attend is certified to
participate in the FFEL program.
– The sentence preceding “**” has been changed
by HERA.

“Eligible/Loan Deferment” and a Certification
Status of “Not Certified” in the PEPS Database
are eligible for FFEL loan deferment purposes
only. They are not certified to participate in
the FFEL programs and students attending
those schools are not eligible to receive FFEL
program loans.

– In addition to reconfirming that the institution
is certified to participate in the FFEL program,
prior to the disbursement of FFEL program
funds directly to a student, guaranty agencies
must contact the foreign school representative
listed in PEPS and verify that the student has
been accepted for enrollment at the institution.

– ED has previously advised foreign schools that
the individual who is authorized to certify
FFEL loan applications for the institution must
be the individual listed in PEPS as the
institutional contact.
– The guaranty agency must resolve any PEPS
discrepancy. A guaranty agency may contact
the institution by telephone or by e-mail.
