150% Subsidized Loan Limitation: Meeting the Challenge!

Date recorded:  June 18, 2014
Duration: 90 minutes
Available until: November 17, 2014

Although this July will mark one year since the 150 percent Direct Subsidized Loan eligibility limitation went into effect, schools still face many challenges in implementing the requirements. These include understanding the nuances of the limitation and implementing major changes to institutional systems and operations as well as the evolving reporting requirements for the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System and National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). This webinar will review the requirements of the 150 percent Direct Subsidized Loan eligibility limitation and will provide best practices for implementing the requirements on campuses. School panelists will share the approach their institutions have taken to meet the reporting requirements, including how they addressed issues encountered in implementing the requirements on their campuses. They also will discuss the methods they use to inform students of how this limitation can affect their Direct Subsidized Loan eligibility.  **Since NASFAA broadcast this event, the U.S. Department of Education has updated its guidance on NSLDS program-level Enrollment Reporting.
