Subject: Webinar Recordings - Foreign School Direct Loan Training

Summary: This letter announces the availability of Federal Student Aid’s recording of a series of webinars designed to assist foreign schools with the transition to the Direct Loan Program.

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce the availability of the recorded versions of our instructor-led, online training series designed to assist foreign schools with the transition to the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program. The webinar series focuses on key aspects of awarding and reporting loans made at foreign schools under the Direct Loan Program, and provides participants with a similar experience to the training workshops that were conducted at various international locations in June 2010.

Federal Student Aid staff presented this information during six two-hour webinar modules in August 2010. For complete descriptions of the sessions, refer to Dear Colleague Letter ANN-10-30.
