Glossary of higher education and student financial aid terms, US English - Standard Spanish. "There are concepts represented in the glossary that are unique to the American higher education and financial aid systems. Therefore, invention and compromise were required at times when translating terms that describe concepts having no precise equivalent in the education and aid systems of Spanish-speaking countries. Due to the variety of audiences and situations to which Spanish-language materials are directed, the glossary offers synonyms from different linguistic registers (or levels of formality). When necessary, the glossary also provides contextual and usage notes."
