THE DRAFT-AID LAW WAS TURN-
ED OFF & ON AGAIN BY THE
COURTS, BUT THE GOVERNMENT
NOW STALLS ENFORCEMENT UN-
TIL OCT. 1ST.
Education Sec. Terrel Bell first gave
schools until Sept. 1 to make sure all male
aid applicants had registered for the dratt, but
has pushed the deadline now to Oct. 1st.
The law says men can’t get aid if they
haven’t registered. They must now sign a
form swearing they’ve done it.
Bell extended the deadline because schools
said they couldn’t track nonsigning students
down during the summer.

The government agency expects this year’s
campus population to stay near last year’s
record 12.4 million, and predicts it may stay
over 12 million throughout the decade.
The findings contradict predictions of
precipitous enrollment declines which were to
start in fall, 1981.
The agency did find a lower percentage of
students enrolled full-time, however.
Two-year schools now have 38% of the
college population, compared to 26% in

Academic Guidance Services (AGS) is a
research and processing organization. There
are literally thousands of scholarships and
grants which are unused each school year
because parents and students just don’t
know that they exist. The amount of money
which is “lost” to the public in this manner,
simply through the lack of information, is
enormous. AGS program entitled
FINANCIAL-AID FINDER matches and
electronically prints out known eligibility re-
quirements of financial sources, their ad-
dresses, the amount of aid offered as well as
other pertinent information. The student
completes a short questionnaire so that the
student’s background and other information
may be matched to the requirements of the
funding sources and scholarships. For addi-
tional information and the questionnaire,
