New financial aid rules begin July 3 By Margie Kirch Staff Reporter Any student who wishes to apply for financial aid funds for the 1983-84 school year and was bom after Dec. 31. 1959. must be registered under the Military Services Act. This law, signed by President Reagan in September 1982. will be effective July 1, 1983. This week, a form and a letter of explanation will be put in all Title IV student financial aid packages. Programs included under Title IV are National Direct Student Loan, College Work Study, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Pell Grant, State Student Incentive Grant. Guaranteed or Federally Insured Student Loan and Plus Loan. Students must complete a form which certifies they are not required to register with the Selective Service because they are either 1 > female, 2> in the armed forces on active duty. 31 are not 18 years old, 41 was bom before I960 or 5 i a permanent resident of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands or the Northern Mariana Islands. If they are required to register for the Selective Service, they must submit a photo copy of the acknowledgement letter from the Selective Service System to the financial aid office. “ Students who have already applied for financial aid funds for the fall semester will automatically receive the forms when their results get back from Iowa City, Iowa,” said Alan F. Shipley, director of student financial aid. “This financial aid office, as well as most financial aid offices in the country, are doing this rather reluctantly. It’s the law and we are required to do it. “ I agree if a student is going to take taxpayer’s money, they should comply with the law, but why did they pick financial aid offices to handle it? We shouldn't have to be the policemen,” Shipley said. Shipley sees two problems that will arise from this new law. Sometimes it takes 90 days to get the acknowledgement letter from the Selective Service, and students cannot receive money until they give a copy of the letter to the financial aid office. If a students turns 18 during the summer, he will have to wait the 90 days to apply for or receive his funds. The other problem is ii a student applied for a bank loan in the summer and the loan does not get here before school starts, he will have to register for the draft even if he has. turned 18 years old. He then must wait 90 days for the acknowledgement letter before receiving the loan. If a student has registered for the d raft, but m isplaced the acknowledgement letter, he must Students presently attending NAU who plan to return next year may take advantage of an early sign-up program for campus housing. The continuing student housing sign-up program is being offered by the NAU Housing Office to all currently enrolled students, residing both on and off campus. But if he is not registered with the draft, I am not required to turn him in to the federal government." Shipley said. “ A lot of the financial aid people thiqk its discriminatory for ‘poor males' who can t afford to go to college,” he said. Students must only complete the form once--once they have it on file, it is good, Shipley said. ‘"There’s some more administrative burden. "We have to look up every student to see if their letter is in the file when they reapply for financial aid. “ We tried to deal with the office of education to tell them this wasn't our job. We aren’t Selective Service employees. However, it has been determined it is our job so we have to do it.” Shipley said. “ We owe it to the continuing students to give them first crack at the preferred housing on campus,” said Residence Life Director Mike Dannells. The sign-up program will be offered in three phases. Dannells said. On March 28 and 29, students currently living in residence halls may sign up to guarantee the same room for next year, he said. This sign up will be conducted in the residence halls. avvw .

This sign up will be on a first come-first serve basis, and also will be conducted in the residence halls, he said. The hours for the first two sign-up periods will be determined by the residence halls, and will be conducted in the University Cent* r. 2-7 p.m. Prior to participating in any of the sign-up period students must make a STS prepayment to the Business Office, which, in accordance with the student’s academic year contract with the university, will apply toward next spring's rent. Dannells said. Students will be required to present their ID and a receipt for the $75 prepay ment to secure a room assignment, he said. To avoid lengthy lines and facilitate the residence hall sign-up procedure, Dannells suggests students make the prepayment as soon as possible. write to the Selective Service for another letter. Shipley said the financial aid office will have forms for these students to speed up the process. Education Secretary Terrel Bell said at a Jan. 23 news conference, “The law is clear, and the govemment will carry out its responsibilities fairly but firmly. The message is simple: no registration, no money.” Bell said the rules would require “ a minimum of administrative effort" by colleges. “ That’s simply not true,'' Shipley-said. “ It will take a lot of effort, especially for NAU, because we’re not computerized. “ If a student comes in and cannot come up with the acknowledgment letter, I can’t grant him financial aid. The way it was Sam Borozan remembers the Old NAU By Margie Kirch Staff Reporter When the typical evening for a college student at Arizona State College (now NAU> involved dancing to jukebox songs like “ I Am a Happy Wanderer” at the Timber Inn, Sam Borozan was one of these students. Borozan graduated from ASC in 1958 and taught school in California for 20 years. Today he is the scholarship coordinator at N AU .. “ There was a loyalty and comradeship that we had at this university. Some people were instrumental in making this that way,” Borozan said. “These people gave us more than an education, but taught us a way of life. There was a bond between students and faculty members that would be impossible today because of the size of the school. “They had given me so much and made my life so successful, I had to come back and replenish that knowledge, education and warmth.*' Borozan recalls life on campus in the 1950s. “The men’s dorms had teachers living there. We were like guests and had to polish our floors, make our beds and keep our rooms clean. We had inspection once a week and we never knew when it would be. We had to pay a fine if our rooms were not clean. “ Dr. Richard Lloyd was my head resident. If we came in a little drunk, once, he would write a letter to our parents and wouldn't mail it unless we came in drunk again," Borozan said. “ He looked after us like a father and we could always go and talk to him about anything.” Less than 500 students attended ASC at the time, and there were many more men than women-a 60 to 40 ratio, Borozan said. University president was L.A. Eastburn, who ran the school like a private college, Borozan said. The women had to be in by 10 p.m., except on weekends when they could stay out until 11:30 p.m.. They also had to check out everytime they left the dorm. The men did not have to be in at any certain time, but as Borozan said, “ We didn’t have anything else to do after the girls went home. “ We were always told the dorm windows were wired, and if we opened them, we would sound an alarm. One summer when I was working up here, I found out it wasn't true. After that, we would sneak the girls out of the window in lower Morton and go to Oak Creek for the evening/’ he ■aid, Borocan was involved in student pranks as well as ac* INSIDE On this shot, NAU forward Rick O’Brien scores against an Air Force Academy goaltender last weekend.
