Dear Colleague:

Student Financial Assistance Programs is pleased to announce two
videoconferences to be presented during the months of February and
March 1995. The videoconferences, presented free of charge to all
postsecondary institutions by the U.S. Department of Education, will
offer current information on the following topics:

February 10, 1995 The 1995-96 Updates to EDExpress
(1:00 - 4:00 PM EST) (Application Entry, Packaging, and
Direct Loans)

March 16, 1995 Direct Loan Servicing

Each videoconference will be presented by a team consisting of
Department of Education and, contractor staff, along with school
experts. The videoconferences will be interactive, offering
participants the opportunity to use a toll-free number or FAX to
question the panel of presenters.

The February and March videoconferences will be broadcast on the
following satellites:

Enclosed is a form to register for each videoconference. If
you wish to register as a host site, please include the
specific address of the building in which the videoconference will be
received. We will provide schools with a list of remote (receiving)
sites by way of the Postsecondary Education Network (PEN) and the
SFA Bulletin Board. If you are unable to access the remote site
information electronically, please call the Federal Student Aid
Information Center at 1-800-4-FEDAID for information about the
remote site nearest to you. Schools wishing to travel to a host site
should contact that site's coordinator to indicate that they will attend.

Written materials for each videoconference will be mailed to the
remote site coordinator for distribution. The materials may be
reproduced as needed. If you are unable to view the
videoconferences live, you may borrow a copy of
each videoconference on videotape, along with the supporting
materials. Call 1-800-4-FEDAID (toll-free) one week following each
videoconference to borrow a tape of that conference.

Once again, we look forward to communicating with you through the
interactive technology of the videoconferencing medium during 1995.
