SEMINAR L'MOROS BAIS
YAAKOV, Student Financial
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
December 1, 1995, Student Financial Assistance Programs (SFAP) filed a motion to dismiss the
above-captioned proceeding without prejudice. The institution did not file a reply.
In its motion, SFAP states that on November 9, 1995, the Department's Institutional
Participation Division (IPD) informed Respondent that its program participation agreement
(PPA) had expired on September 30, 1995, and that, as a result, Respondent is no longer eligible
to participate in programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (Title
IV, HEA programs). The November 9, 1995 letter from IPD to Respondent states that it advised
Respondent in March 1995 that, in order to remain eligible to participate in the Title IV, HEA
programs after September 30, 1995, the school needed to submit a new application to renew its
PPA to the Department by June 30, 1995. The IPD letter further states that by letter of
September 14, 1995, it reminded Respondent of the need to submit its application as soon as
possible, but IPD did not receive Respondent's application until October 10, 1995. As a result,
Respondent's eligibility expired as scheduled on September 30, 1995.
Since the Respondent's eligibility to participate in Title IV, HEA
programs expired on
September 30, 1995, the present termination action has been rendered moot. Accordingly, it is
HEREBY ORDERED that the proceeding is DISMISSED.
