Subject: Webinar Recording - Gainful Employment: Reading Your Draft GE Completers List Files

Summary: This letter announces the availability of Federal Student Aid's recording of the first June 2016 webinar about the Gainful Employment (GE) Completers List.

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce the availability of the recorded version of the Reading Your Draft GE Completers List Files webinar. In this session we described the GE Completers List that was distributed to institutions on June 1, 2016, the origin of the data included on it, and how to read and interpret the information. This training also described two new tools to assist institutions with reading their GE Completers List: the GE Completers List Import Tool (spreadsheet) and the GE Completers List Viewer Tool.

Federal Student Aid staff presented this webinar on June 2 and again on June 7, 2016. While the presentation for both sessions was the same, the questions received from participants were different; therefore, we are providing the recording and transcript for both sessions.

No registration is required to view the recorded training sessions.
