This letter announces FSA's one-day training workshops (offered from September through December at locations throughout the country) covering Return of Title IV Funds, Analyzing Data, and Conflicting Information, and provides a link to FSA's new registration system, where all workshops and locations are listed.

Dear Partner:

We are pleased to announce our fall training workshops on Return of Title IV Funds (R2T4), Analyzing Data, and Conflicting Information. These one-day workshops will use a combination of case studies, group exercises, and lecture to present updated information on these key topics.

Who should attend?

These workshops are targeted to experienced aid administrators rather than beginners. In particular, the R2T4 portion of this training assumes that participants are familiar with the Department's February '04 Dear Colleague Letter (GEN-04-03) on "Return of Title IV Aid." To access this letter, click here: http://ifap.ed.gov/dpcletters/GEN0403.html

What topics will the workshops cover?

R2T4

  • New information regarding "Aid That Could Have Been Disbursed"
  • Transfer and re-entry students
  • Verification not completed before withdrawal
  • Determining the student's withdrawal date, with various scenarios:
    • Not required to take attendance
    • Unofficial withdrawals
    • At least one passing grade vs. no passing grades
    • Academic grading policies
    • Documentation of an academically related activity
    • Treatment of a student who drops all classes
  • Percentage of Title IV Aid Earned when withdrawing from a Credit-Hour Non-term Program, and examples
  • Title IV credit balances and scenarios

Analyzing Data

  • Interpreting the FAA Information section of the ISIR
  • Understanding the ISIR Analysis Tool
  • Data Matches

Conflicting Information

  • Conflicting Documentation and Interpreting the Federal Income Tax Return
  • Ensuring Accuracy in Estimates and Resolving Inconsistencies

What should I bring?

Bring a three-ring binder for the training materials.

When and where are the workshops offered, and how do I register?

The workshops will take place from September through December at FSA's Regional Training Facilities and at selected school locations nationwide.
