College Cost Reduction and Access Act
College Cost Reduction and Access Act (CCRA Act) - The College Cost Reduction and Access Act was signed into law on September 27, 2007. This Act eliminated the EP program (defined below), thereby decreasing The Student Loan Corporation’s (the Company) reimbursement rates on Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program loans. Under the CCRA Act, the Company will receive a 97% or 98% reimbursement rate for substantially all claims filed after October 1, 2007, depending on the origination date of the loan. The provisions of the CCRA Act also include further reduction in the reimbursement rate to 95% for new loans disbursed on or after October 1, 2012 as well as reductions in special allowance payments of 55 basis points for Stafford and Consolidation Loans and 85 basis points for PLUS Loans.
