In July 2014, Federal Student Aid (FSA) will present, in co-sponsorship with the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), the fourth and fifth in a series of webinars on the requirements related to the implementation of the 150 percent time limit for a student to receive Direct Subsidized Loans. Specifically, these webinars will focus on new requirements and enhancements to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) enrollment reporting process. As the co-sponsorships indicate, this information is critical to both financial aid administrators and to institutional registrars. Both must collaborate to ensure that the 150% Direct Subsidized Loan Limit is correctly implemented. FSA highly encourages participation in the webinars by representatives from both the financial aid office and the registrar’s office.
#4 – General Overview of Program-Level Enrollment Reporting
This webinar will provide information on the new enrollment reporting file layouts that schools must use to report program-level enrollment information to the Department in support of its implementation of the 150% Direct Subsidized Loan Limit. The focus will be on when program-level reporting is required, the data items to be included in the program-level reporting, and the definitions of those data items. This 90-minute session will be offered on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 and repeated on Wednesday, July 16, 2014. The webinar will begin at 1:30 P.M. (ET).
#5 – Critical Details to Proper Program-Level Enrollment Reporting
This webinar will provide more detailed information on the new enrollment reporting file layouts schools must use to report program-level enrollment information to the Department, information about special programs and exceptions, and a discussion of how NSLDS will use the institutionally reported program-level enrollment information in support of the 150% limit. Specific examples of program-level enrollment reporting, why certain situations must be reported and how to correctly report them, will be provided. This 90-minute session will be offered on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 and repeated on Thursday, July 31, 2014. The webinars will begin at 1:30 P.M. (ET). Advance registration is required for this training and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
