What are the differences between standard terms, nonstandard terms, and programs without terms? How do these different types of academic calendars impact the packaging and disbursement of Title IV aid? How do modules, summer terms, and intersessions fit in? As academic departments continue to explore new ways to deliver academic programs, it is essential to understand how those decisions can affect the Title IV programs you offer and impact your students. Join NASFAA's Joe Massman to explore basic concepts that will help inform your conversations and choices about program structure.

Due to the complex nature of this webinar topic, we are allowing extra time for Q&A. As always, all NASFAA webinars are recorded for on-demand viewing should you have to log off before the webcast ends.
