Subject: Webinar Recording - Direct Loan Tools

Summary: This letter announces the availability of Federal Student Aid’s recording of a webinar on Direct Loan (DL) Tools for Windows, a supplemental software product designed to assist schools with William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program reconciliation. This webinar recording updates one session from the previously-offered Direct Loan Webinar Training Suite.

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce the availability of the recorded version of our online, instructor-led training session on DL Tools, a software product that assists institutions with reconciling, administering, and managing Direct Loans. The session includes information that will be useful to both EDExpress and non-EDExpress software users, and is intended for financial aid and business office staff with Direct Loan reconciliation responsibilities.

Federal Student Aid staff presented this information in a one hour session in mid-June 2012. For a complete description of the session, refer to Dear Colleague Letter ANN-12-11.

Note: This session was offered in 2010 as part of the Direct Loan Webinar Training Suite. The session has now been updated and expanded to provide current information about Direct Loan Tools. As a reminder, we have updated several of the sessions from 2010 and recordings are available (refer to Dear Colleague Letter ANN-11-28). Additional Direct Loan webinars will be offered in the future to provide further updated information.
