Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce instructor-led, online training that will provide Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) with information on the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program reconciliation and program year closeout processes. This webinar, conducted entirely in Spanish, will include an overview of Direct Loan processing and recent regulatory changes, with an emphasis on the impact that efficient daily Direct Loan processing has on successful monthly reconciliation and year-end closeout activities. We will discuss school requirements and responsibilities, as well as Direct Loan reports, tools, and resources available to assist schools in reconciling and closing out in a timely manner.

This training is intended for financial aid and business office staff at Spanish-speaking institutions who have Direct Loan reconciliation and closeout responsiblities.

We will present this information in a 90 minute session offered on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 3:00 P.M. (ET) and again on Thursday, June 21, 2012 at 11:00 A.M. (ET).

Advance registration is required for this training and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. To allow for as many participants as possible, we strongly encourage groups to view the webinar from a single location if accommodations allow. If viewing as a group, only one person from the group needs to register.

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.
