SUMMARY: This letter describes a series of training "Super Weeks" sponsored by the Office of Student Financial Assistance to be held in Guam, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Workshop schedules and registration information are included.
We are pleased to announce a series of "Super Week" workshops that includes the 2000-2001 EDExpress for Windows software for our customers outside the continental United States. These workshops are sponsored by Student Financial Assistance and will be offered during the months of May and June 2000 in Guam, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
The primary goal of these Super Weeks is to bring the U. S. Department of Education's training programs to targeted areas outside the continental United States. The workshops may include Spring 2000 Reauthorization Training, The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), and the 2000-2001 EDExpress software modules for Pell/RFMS, Application Processing, and Packaging.
EDExpress is an ED-developed software that enables schools to process Title IV data electronically using the Student Access Internet Gateway (SAIG). These training sessions on the new 2000-2001 software will include hands-on exercises using a simulated database on live software.
The schedules for these workshops are as follows:
GUAM to be held at Guam Community College May 15-19 from 8:30am-5:00pm.
Contact person: Micki Lonsdale at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The training is intended for any school that participates in any of the Title IV programs. We anticipate that the audience will be diverse in terms of the type of campus administrator, the level of responsibility, and the type of technology solution used at the campus.
Because this is "hands-on" computer training, the size of each class is limited and registration is absolutely required. Although these are Super Weeks, each trainee must register for each module (Pell/RFMS, Reauthorization, NSLDS, Application Processing, and Packaging) individually on the particular registration page for the intended workshop. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and due to the limited space, participation is limited to forty people per workshop. In the event of a workshop cancellation, each trainee will be notified by e-mail. If you need help in the registration process, please call (202) 205-2667 or e-mail
This training is free; however participants must arrange and pay for their own transportation, meals and lodging. If you have questions about the site location, please contact the region for which you will be attending. The regional telephone numbers are listed on the workshop schedule.
On behalf of Student Financial Assistance and SFA University, we look forward to your participation in this training series.
