The twelfth module in a 17-module self-instructional course on student financial aid administration discusses campus-based financial programs. They are SEOG (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant), CWS (College Work-Study), and Perkins Loans. It is part of a full course designed for novice financial aid administrators and other institutional personnel needing a systematic introduction to the management of federal financial aid programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act. It teaches how to define and describe campus-based programs, describe the transfer provisions of the SEOG and CWS programs, and describe the institution's due diligence responsibilities for the Perkins loan program. Four sections focus on the following: (1) allocation and administration of campus-based funds (institutional allocation, fund management and administrative coordination); (2) the SEOG program (student eligibility and awards); (3) the CWS program (i.e. job placement, employment conditions, selection and placement procedures, and paying the student and monitoring expenditures); and (4) the Perkins Loan program (e.g., loan amounts, applicable interest rates, and disbursing Perkins Loan funds). A pre-test, post-test, glossary, and acronyms are provided. Four appendices are: sample CWS material, sample Perkins Loan materials, Department of Education due diligence requirements, and annual campus-based authorization letter. Contains five references.
