NU - Online Course Icon 

This course focuses on the principles of verification, information subject to verification, acceptable documentation, processing corrections, how to verify applicant files in accordance with Title IV verification requirements, and options for institutional verification. This online course is a perfect collaborative learning tool for intermediate level financial aid professionals, and has been designed with the necessary tools, equipment and subject matter expertise to guide you through the process. A credential is provided after successfully completing and passing the credential test, which is available at the conclusion of the course and included in your course fee. 
NASFAA University courses are 100% online with an asynchronous focus, meaning the individual attendee can log on anytime/anyplace (assuming they have Internet access) and participate in course requirements – naturally there are due dates they will need to adhere to, i.e. weekly assignments that must be completed. There are also weekly synchronous class meetings. However, these “live” classes are optional and recorded for on-demand viewing by the course attendee. While there will be no grade reductions for students that do not attend the live classes, we do encourage attendance to due to the highly collaborative nature of the courses.
