Welcome to Federal Student Aid's 2010 Regional Direct Loan Training Conferences home page! Our goal is to ensure that students have access to federal student loans for their education. To accomplish this objective, we want to make sure that institutions of higher education participating in the FFEL Program and wishing to augment their federal student loan options have the resources they need to participate in the Direct Loan ProgramSM.
For this reason, Federal Student Aid established the Regional Direct Loan Training Conferences. These free, one-day training workshops will be offered in several locations and provide financial aid professionals at domestic schools with the essential skills necessary to administer the Direct Loan program at their institution.
Financial aid professionals that are interested in participating in the Direct Loan Program, or that are new participants to the program, are encouraged to attend one of these sessions. Each conference will include instructor-led sessions featuring information about the Direct Loan Program, the systems used to administer the program, and issues to consider if implementing the Direct Loan Program on your campus.
Due to capacity limits at each location, all attendees must pre-register online. In addition, to ensure access to all interested parties, we are asking registrants to only register at one location.
Please see our Program and Agenda section for additional information on the various sessions and the day’s agenda. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 202-377-3633 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you to meet your training needs. Register soon for a training session near you!
