Summary: This letter announces the availability of Federal Student Aid’s recording of a webinar on the cohort default rate process and default management, including effective default prevention strategies.

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce the availability of the recorded version of our online, instructor-led training session that discussed what schools need to know about the cohort default rate process and default management.

How to implement an effective default prevention strategy was also discussed.
