Professional Development Opportunity, hosted by AACRAO.org!
Increased financial aid regulations are driving academic and student process requirement changes, which requires student services departments to collaborate. Loma Linda University will address three ways the offices of University Records and Financial Aid have collaborated for the benefit of the institution and the student: (1) enrollment reporting, (2) non-term registration, and (3) program withdrawal. Come hear the process of working together and of creating a system that is compliant with regulation requirements and beneficial for the student.
December 8th, 2-3pm

Part 2: Essential Information for "Road Warriors": Helping Admission Staff Talk with Students and Families about the 2017-2018 FAFSA (Registration required [free])
Admission recruiters are often the first point of contact with families regarding the financial aid process. The 2017 – 2018 FAFSA will be available in October 2016 and recent changes (Prior-Prior Year / Early FAFSA) have created questions and concerns. In order to effectively communicate these changes to this population, admission staff need to be adequately prepared before they hit the road. In this webinar, presenters will discuss best practices in preparing admission officers to speak about early FAFSA to students and families. (1 hour in length)
Part 3: Practical Implications for the 2017-2018 FAFSA on Admission and Enrollment Management Offices (Registration required [free])
In this third and final webinar, you will receive the latest update from a Department of Education, Federal Student Aid representative on the issue, as well as a review of an AACRAO Sixty Second Survey on institutional responses to the changes. You will also hear from presenters who will discuss how their offices are handling the changes. (1 hour in length)
