A Self-Instructional Course in Student Financial Aid Administration. Module 1--Student Financial Aid Administration: Course Study Guide & Introduction to the Field. Second Edition.
Washington Consulting Group, Inc., Washington, DC.; Office of Student Financial Assistance (ED), Washington, DC.
The first of a 17-module self-instructional course, this module provides neophyte financial aid administrators and other instructional personnel with a systematic introduction to the management of federal financial aid programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act. It is an introductory course that presents the major responsibilities that financial aid administrators have in common with one another. Its objectives are to describe the roles and responsibilities involved in administering financial aid by understanding the institution's and financial aid administrator's specific roles in the responsible management of Title IV funds, recognize personal skills and resources needed in successful financial aid administration, and identify standard organizational tools to manage the multiple demands found in financial aid administration. A guide to using these materials is provided along with a pre-test, a post-test, a glossary, and a chart for tracking progress through the course. Module 1 focuses on: major areas of responsibility (recognizing differences); views of roles (the institution's view, the Department of Education's view, the student's view); multiple demands (time factors, staying up-to-date, accessibility); balancing multiple demands (time management, a policy and procedures guide, communication); personal characteristics and skills (outlook, skills); and outside resources. Contains two references. (SM)
