8VAC40-132-230. Discontinuing student loan programs.

A. If any federal student loan program for which the institutional contribution was appropriated by the General Assembly is discontinued, the institutional share of the discontinued loan program shall be repaid to the fund from which the institutional share was derived unless other arrangements are recommended by the council and approved by the Department of Planning and Budget. Should the institution be permitted to retain the federal contributions to the program, the funds shall be used according to arrangements authorized by the council and approved by the Department of Planning and Budget.

B. An institution may discontinue its student loan program established pursuant to §§ 23.1-618 through 23.1-621 of the Code of Virginia. The full amount of cash in the discontinued loan fund shall be paid into the state treasury into a nonrevertible nongeneral fund account. Prior to such payment, the State Comptroller shall verify its accuracy, including the fact that the cash held by the institution in the loan fund will be fully depleted by such payment. The loan fund shall not be reestablished for that institution.

C. The cash paid into the state treasury shall be used only for awards to undergraduate students in the Virginia Student Financial Assistance Program according to arrangements authorized by the council and approved by the Department of Planning and Budget. Payments of any promissory notes held by the discontinued loan fund shall continue to be received by the institution and deposited to the nonrevertible nongeneral fund account and to be used for the VGAP awards and undergraduate Commonwealth Awards.
