Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce the availability of an online, self-paced training module about the cohort default rate process and default management.

The session is intended for financial aid professionals interested in and concerned with all aspects of default management.

Note: In the coming months, we will release additional training modules on this topic, to include information on adjustments and appeals and on default aversion strategies and practices for institutions. We will inform the community of the availability of the online training in forthcoming Training Announcements posted on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site.
