Summary: Electronic Cohort Default Rate Appeals Process Training Sessions
Posted on 02-21-2008
Federal Student Aid is pleased to announce electronic Cohort Default Rate Appeals process (eCDR Appeals) online training sessions. These instructor-led online training sessions will provide a demonstration of how a school or data manager user completes the registration process for the eCDR Appeals system and will demonstrate how a school user prepares an incorrect data challenge (IDC) and how a data manager user responds to an IDC through the eCDR Appeals system.
There will be two training sessions; one specifically for school users and one specifically for data manager users. The session information is as follows:
All classes will be conducted using Federal Student Aid's Distance Education system, which allows you to participate without leaving your desk. Registration is not required for these sessions.
Each training session will be conducted by a federal trainer. During the session, you will be able to interact with the instructors using your computer's keyboard.
Because this is an online session, you will need to have a computer with an Internet connection and a separate phone line to access the audio portion of the training. Please click on the links below to determine if your system meets the requirements to access the session.

PLEASE NOTE: We have recently upgraded our Distance Education System. The new system will require installing new browser plug-in software to your system for full functionality. This may take as long as 30 minutes to download and install. You may be required to contact your IT department in order to accomplish this upgrade. We will be unable to assist you in the installation in the 30 minutes prior to the session. So take a moment now to install the browser plug-ins.
