What is the loan period and academic year in a standard term program with modules? When prorating a Direct Loan, can we include hours in a term for a student enrolled less than half time? If a student regains SAP eligibility mid-year, can we award a Direct Loan for the entire academic year? How do we determine loan eligibility for a transfer student when the schools treat the summer term differently? When a student repays a Direct Loan within the same academic year, can a new loan be originated? In this Q&A style webinar, we will test your knowledge on key aspects of the Direct Loan program, and share guidance NASFAA received from the U.S. Department of Education. Join Susan Shogren, Assessment and Training Project Coordinator, to explore some of the most frequently asked questions related to packaging, originating, and disbursing Federal Direct Loans received by our NASFAA AskRegs service.
