© NASFAA 2012 About the HEA Title IV of the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965, as amended, authorizes the major federal student aid programs that serve postsecondary students. Congress reviews and “reauthorizes” the statutes governing these programs about every 5 years. Although current federal student aid program authorizations in the HEA do not expire until the end of 2013, there is growing interest in Congress on issues that might be considered during the next reauthorization process.
