Minority-Serving and Under-Resourced Schools Division 2016 Workshops


The U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Minority-Serving and Under-Resourced Schools Division (MSURSD) is pleased to announce the two-day workshop series,

Compliance Enhancement and Default Management.”  The workshop will be presented in a lecture format with facilitated discussion.

Who should attend the training?
Because meeting compliance goals in the delivery of Title IV aid requires a proactive institutional approach, we encourage bursars, registrars, and financial aid, fiscal affairs, and student accounts staff to attend the training.

What will the workshop cover?
The workshop consists of four modules that address the most common findings from audits and program reviews.  The workshop will also include updates on pertinent Title IV rules, regulations and/or regulatory guidance.

Day One – Topics

Early FAFSA Submission/FSA Reporting Requirements/Best Practices for Building a Collaborative Team/Federal Updates.

Day Two – Topics

What is Default Management/CDR Appeal and Challenge Processes/Borrower Repayment Options/How to Interpret CDR Reports/MSURSD Financial Literacy Tool Kit
