Macro International, Inc., Calverton, MD.
This guide provides information for schools considering whether to participate in the Federal Direct Student Loan Program, and it offers advice on how to plan for and operate the loan program at an individual school. The information in the guide is presented in a way that follows the steps that need to be taken in planning and implementing the program at a school, moving first through the initial steps of: (1) making the decision; (2) making the switch; (3) getting started; (4) your computer system; (5) using commercial software; and (6) working with a third-party servicer. The guide then proceeds through the loan process, from application through reconciliation, and covers loan application, promissory notes, loan origination, estimation and drawdown, disbursement, loan changes, borrower counseling, consolidation, reconciliation, quality assurance, and reengineering. A final section explains how to get help. The appendix provides a list of institutions that can provide technical and programmatic assistance. (CH)
