This workshop manual is designed to teach financial aid administrators about student eligibility. The first module, "Student Eligibility," defines student eligibility criteria and discusses interpreting output documents and financial aid histories. Module 2 discusses calculating the expected family contribution (EFC) and calculating a student's financial need. Module 3 discusses verification and data integrity, explaining what to do in cases of conflicting information, the requirements of verification, and verifying data for individual applicants. Each module contains learning and job aids, case studies, and answer keys. A workshop wrap-up section reviews the material covered. Five appendixes contain: (1) a glossary; (2) federal student aid acronyms; (3) required reports; (4) 2003-2004 application and delivery system changes; and (5) the pretraining crossword exercise and review session answers.
