Training

In our ongoing effort to help your school increase student success, we have created a new service-oriented training series. This series, occurring every Tuesday at 2 p.m. (Eastern), explains how you can work with servicers to better assist students and how we can help improve your day-to-day activities in the office.

On Wednesdays, the Partner Solutions team offers additional financial aid officer training. The sessions, which occur at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. (Eastern), discuss topics such as customer service, reporting, new regulations, and more.

If you can’t attend a webinar in real time, don’t worry; the recorded versions are added to our library of resources every week!
