Subject: Live Internet Webinar - Completing the FISAP

Summary: This letter announces Federal Student Aid’s instructor-led, online training sessions on the FISAP.

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce instructor-led, online training that will focus on the Fiscal Operations Report for 2008-2009 and the Application to Participate for 2010-2011 (FISAP). This FISAP is available on the eCampus-Based (eCB) Web site and must be submitted no later than October 1, 2009 by schools that participate in the Federal Perkins Loan Program, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) Program, and Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program. We will review the sections of the FISAP, identify changes made to the current FISAP, and discuss the most commonly made errors when completing the FISAP. The training is intended for individuals on the financial aid and business office staff who are responsible for completing the FISAP—especially those who are new to completing the FISAP.

We will present this information in a 90-minute session and will offer the session on two different days to provide ample opportunity for those interested in attending.

The schedule is as follows:
  • Thursday, September 3, 2009, 1:30 P.M. (ET)

  • Thursday, September 10, 2009, 1:30 P.M. (ET)

Note: There may be a difference between a trainee’s local time and Eastern Time. To determine local time and its Eastern Time zone equivalent, click on this link:

Once registered, we will send an e-mail confirmation to the trainee. The trainee should retain this confirmation, as it contains important information, including linking and log in information for the Web site, system test links, and cancellation information. If unable to attend, we request that the trainee cancel his or her registration so that individuals who wish to attend may do so.

PowerPoint slides will be available for each trainee to download after he or she signs in to the webinar. During the webinar, trainees will be able to ask questions electronically using their computers.

Note: It will be helpful for trainees to have the current FISAP for reference during the webinar. PDF versions of the current FISAP form and instructions are available on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site at http://ifap.ed.gov/fisap-form-and-instructions/06-30-2009-subject-final-form-and-instructions-fisap-due-october-1-2009.
