EDExpress Pell Training, 2000-2001.
Department of Education, Washington, DC. Student Financial Assistance.
This training manual is intended for higher education institutions that process Federal Pell Grants under a new system called the recipient financial management system (RFMS). The RFMS system is part of the electronic data exchange process which allows schools to send and receive Title IV student financial aid application data to and from the Department of Education. The manual is organized in six units: Unit 1 is an overview and introduction to the RFMS system. Unit 2 covers origination and explains how to enter, export, and import data both manually and electronically. Unit 3 covers disbursement and provides lessons in handling multiple reporting records; creating, exporting and importing disbursement records; and creating special disbursement records. Unit 4 covers funding, and Unit 5 covers requesting data. Unit 6 is a review lesson on applying what has been learned. The three appendixes include charts of record layouts, a glossary, and answers to exercises. (CH)
