This course provides an overview of general student eligibility criteria and documentation requirements, acquaints participants with the role of the Central Processing System (CPS), the student eligibility database matches, and the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), as well as how certain educational programs affect student eligibility. Presentations, discussion topics, and homework assignments reinforce key course concepts. 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 held Monday nights at 6pm ET. 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 Monday nights, we do encourage attendance to due to the highly collaborative nature of the courses.
As a participant of this course you will be asked to:
- Review educational presentations
- Complete learning assignments and quizzes
- Participate in online discussions
- Collaborate with other financial aid administrators
