This session will introduce Foreign Schools to their responsibilities in structuring their institutions’ various offices to successfully manage the Direct Loan program on their campuses. 9:45 – 10:30 Student Eligibility Reviewing ISIR Data/FAA Access All Title IV Schools are required to participate electronically and using these systems is a necessity. This session will show how looking at these screens, schools will be able to review and determine if the student is eligible for Title IV aid. This session will also explore the other student eligibility criteria as the student is meeting institutional SAP standards, etc. Using EDconnect to connect to the SAIG and retrieve records will also be shown. 10:30 – 10:45 Break 10:45 – 12:00 Awarding Loans Determining Award Amounts Schools will learn how about the cost of attendance components and how they then will determine subsidized Direct Loan eligibility after determining financial need and EFA, then determining unsubsidized Direct Loan eligibility and Direct PLUS loan funds. Schools will complete a case study on awarding loans and adjusting if additional outside EFA becomes available. Cash Management All Title IV schools must follow regulations related to managing Direct Loan funds. This session will walk schools through the regulations related to the timing of requesting funds and be shown a tour of the G5 screens related to drawing down funds and returning funds. 12:00 – 1:15 Lunch 1:15 – 2:15 Electronic Processes Sessions (Reconvene in Hands-On room) Using FAA Access to review ISIRs Schools will have the opportunity to connect with FSA’s FAA Access Demonstration site and review and make corrections to an ISIR record.

Participants are encouraged to ask questions of the instructor about how to accomplish certain tasks. 3:45 – 4:45 Using NSLDS Schools will have the opportunity to complete tasks using the NSLDS Training System to research a student’s eligibility by reviewing their financial aid history and any warning statuses that may affect the student’s eligibility for Direct Loans. The participants will also learn how to review and update the student’s enrollment status as well as how to manage receipt of enrollment reporting documents and NSLDS reports. 4:45 – 5:15 Next Steps at the FSA Conference Foreign Schools only participate in the Direct Loan program and the FSA Conference has several sessions specific to administering Direct Loans by all schools.
