Subject: Update to COD Computer-Based Training

On April 9, 2009, we updated the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) Computer-Based Training (CBT) by removing an eMPN Online Simulation that is no longer applicable. Specifically, we removed the eMPN Online for School Administrators Simulation because all school administrative functions that were previously performed via the Direct Loan Electronic Master Promissory Note (MPN) Web site have been moved to the COD Web site.

We informed schools of the change in location for performing Direct Loan Electronic MPN administrative functions in a March 20, 2009 Electronic Announcement posted on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site. For information about performing these administrative functions via the COD Web site, refer to the March 20th Electronic Announcement or contact the COD School Relations Center.
