Professional judgment (PJ) is sometimes viewed as one of the more challenging aspects of Title IV program administration. Aid administrators are required to act within the PJ authority and clearly document decisions made. This webinar will teach you guiding principles and assist in their application on your campus.

New to financial aid? We recommend reviewing the New Aid Officer Training Series session on Professional Judgment for a basic understanding, prior to watching this webinar.
