Invitation to Participate in the Department of Education’s Experimental Sites Initiative Extended to April 30!

The U.S. Department of Education has extended the deadline until April 30, 2013, for postsecondary educational institutions to express interest in participating in one or more of the Experimental Sites Initiative (ESI) experiments currently in process. The ESI allows schools that apply and qualify for participation to use alternative methods to meet some of the requirements for administering Federal Student Aid programs in order to test the impact of these changes on students and institutions.

For more information on the Experimental Sites Initiative and for guidance on submitting an application, please see the original Dear Colleague Letter issued by the Office of Federal Student Aid.
