Subject: Additional Classroom Space - March and April 2009 Live Internet Webinar Sessions on Direct Loan Processing for NewParticipants

Summary: This letter announces additional classroom space for Federal Student Aid’s instructor-led, online training sessions on Direct Loan processing for new participants that will be presented on March 31, 2009 and April 28, 2009.

Dear Colleague:

In Dear Colleague Letter ANN-09-02, we announced instructor-led, online training that will focus on Direct Loan processing basics related to origination records, credit checks, electronic promissory notes, disbursements, funding, reconciliation, Direct Loan reports, Direct Loan servicing, resources for borrowers, and resources for schools. This training is geared to individuals on the financial aid staff at schools new to the Direct Loan Program or to individuals at schools that already process Direct Loans but who are new in their positions. We will offer the training six times during the period February through July 2009.

Registration for these online training sessions has been overwhelming, and the March 31, 2009 and April 28, 2009 sessions quickly filled to initial capacity. Based on requests from the community, we have increased the capacity for both of these sessions. We hope to serve many more individuals at this critical time in the processing year through the additional classroom space in March and April.

Individuals who previously attempted to register for either the March 31, 2009 or April 28, 2009 session but were unable to do so are welcome to revisit our registration Web site. As a reminder, advance registration is required for this training and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, click on this link:

For complete information about this instructor-led, online training opportunity, including the dates for sessions in May, June, and July 2009, refer to Dear Colleague Letter ANN-09-02.
