Is your office stress level extremely high? Is your delivery of services not efficient? Does your financial aid director have enough time for planning and compliance oversight? These are all staffing issues examined during Administrative Capability. Before a school may participate in any Title IV program, it must demonstrate to the U.S. Department of Education (ED) that the school is able to properly manage the Title IV aid programs and meet its obligation to educate and prepare students.
RMASFAA has given 99 people an opportunity to become credentialed in Administrative Capability. I was one of those 99 people. RMASFAA is offering an accessible option to obtain these credentials right from your office. They are offered through a webinar series, which makes it easier to those of us who may not be able to travel to get these completed. Brenda Hicks did a fantastic job on presenting Administrative Capability. She provided a straightforward way to follow along on a topic that can be quite complicated to discuss. I am so thankful that I have been given the opportunity from RMASFAA to further my knowledge and better my office.
The next credentialing webinar is Tuesday, February 14th at 9:30 CST/8:30 EST. The topic is ‘Student Eligibility’ presented by Linda Butcher and Janet Dodson.
