Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce instructor-led, online training that will focus on final regulations related to changes to the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Work-Study, and Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant (TEACH Grant) programs made by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (the HEOA), Pub. L. 110-315, as well as changes to other institutional requirements related to the administration of all Title IV student assistance programs. These final regulations were published on October 29, 2009 in the Federal Register. The training is intended for all participants in the Title IV student assistance programs.

Federal Student Aid staff will present this information in a 90-minute session offered on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 at 2:30 P.M. (ET) and once again on Monday, November 16, 2009 at 2:30 P.M. (ET).

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.

We look forward to your participation in this instructor-led, online training opportunity. If you have questions about this training opportunity, please contact Jamie Malone at jamie.malone@ed.gov.
