Higher Education Act

The House will extend the Higher Education Act until June of 2007. The Higher Education Act, last fully reauthorized in 1998 (PL 105-244), governs all federal aid to students and their colleges, including student loans, Pell and other grants, and campus-based aid such as Perkins loans and work-study programs. The extension is the fifth to be considered during the 109th Congress. The current extension expires Sept. 30.
