The Office of Financial Aid then submits all required information regarding these gifts to the U.S. Department of Education by submitting a revised on-line Federal Program Participation Agreement, and mailing the supporting materials to the Department. As a result of this submission, Bowie State receives a revised Eligibility and Certification Approval Report.
