I want to put on record the University's position with respect
to Public Law 97-252, which prohibits giving financial aid
from any Title IV source to students who are required to
register for the draft but have not done so.
- Because this law inappropriately places the
University in a position of enforcing a law unrelated to
our educational purposes, we shall join with other
institutions and educational organizations in efforts to
modify or repeal it.
- We shall comply with the law and withhold Title IV funds
from students affected by Public Law 97-252.
- We shall comply with the Federal regulations when they are
promulgated. While the regulations are under review,
however, we shall attempt to influence their formulation
to minimize the burden on the University and its students.
- Finally, no student who has complied with Public Law 97-
252 will be disadvantaged by any University financial
aid policy or practice.
Financial Aid Coordinator Jaeger will send implementing
procedures directly to your Financial Aid Officers.
I appreciate the help you have offered in our discussions of
the appropriate University position.
For your information, I have provided the above statement to
