The 2017 edition of the Common Manual Unified Student Loan Policy is now available. The updated Manual includes all of the policies affecting current Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) rules that were developed and updated during the past year. You can obtain the 2017 edition in electronic format via our Common Manual page or on the Common Manual website.
The Common Manual provides a single, standardized set of current student loan rules and FFELP policy guidance. The Integrated Common Manual is updated periodically with policies approved by the Governing Board the previous quarter, while the Electronic Common Manual is released annually. Both formats are always available for download from the Common Manual website, which also hosts other useful, related content.
