ACP receives provisional certification for Title IV
Mickey McGlothlin, President of the Appalachian College of Pharmacy, is pleased to announce that the College has entered into a Program Participation Agreement (PPA) with the US Department of Education (DOE) that provides that the College may participate in those student financial assistance programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (Title IV HEA Programs). This is a provisional certification and is granted through June 30, 2013.
These funds will not be available for students to pay their tuition and fees which were due in August, 2011. The College anticipates that these funds will be available for spring term 2012 and possibly late fall term 2011; however, there is no assurance that these funds will be available during fall term 2011. The College will continue working with the DOE to implement the program, setup software systems to communicate student and institutional information. The College has hired Financial Aid Services, a third-party servicer of Atlanta, Georgia, to expedite the implementation and disbursement of Title IV funds.
Susan Mayhew, Dean of the College, stated that she appreciated the hard work of Vickie Keene, Director of Academic Records, Admissions, and Financial Aid, and her staff for their efforts on behalf of the College in obtaining this agreement.
