Anyone wishing to file third-party comment eligible for consideration by the Commission must read and abide by these rules. All third-party comment must be filed using the “NASAD Official Third-Party Comment Form.”

The institution will be given an opportunity to review and respond to any third-party comment eligible for Commission review under the rules and procedures cited above.
