Subject: Live Internet Webinar – FFEL, Direct Loan, and Perkins Loan Notices of Proposed Rulemaking

Summary: This letter announces Federal Student Aid’s instructor-led, online training session on two Notices of Proposed Rulemaking published in July 2009. These proposed rules relate to changes to the FFEL, Direct Loan, and Perkins Loan programs made by the HEOA.

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce instructor-led, online training that will focus on proposed rules related to changes to the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL), William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan), and Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins Loan) programs made by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (the HEOA), Pub. L. 110-315. As explained in a July 28, 2009 Electronic Announcement on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals Web site, we recently published two Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NRPM) in the Federal Register. Both NPRMs propose changes to the regulations governing the Title IV student loan programs. One NPRM, published on July 23, 2009, covers lender and guaranty agency issues. The other NPRM, published on July 28, 2009, covers school-based issues. The training is intended for all participants in the FFEL, Direct Loan, and/or Perkins Loan programs.

Federal Student Aid and Office of Postsecondary Education staff will present this information in a 90-minute session on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 1:30 P.M. (ET).

Once registered, we will send an e-mail confirmation to the trainee. The trainee should retain this confirmation, as it contains important information, including linking and log in information for the Web site, system test links, and cancellation information. If unable to attend, we request that the trainee cancel his or her registration so that individuals who wish to attend may do so.

PowerPoint slides will be available for each trainee to download after he or she signs in to the webinar. During the webinar, trainees will be able to ask questions electronically using their computers.
