Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce an additional set of webinars in our Wednesday Webinar Series, a series of live, two-hour webinars which cover a variety of topics related to the Title IV programs. The webinars provide the most recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) and the office of Federal Student Aid, including statutory and regulatory updates. Operational information and reminders are also shared. Participants are encouraged to ask questions by typing them into the chat during the webinar and a live Q&A session follows each presentation.

Federal Student Aid staff will present the next set of webinars in this series in September–November 2023. More webinars that address topics of interest to the financial aid community will be announced in the future.

You do not need to register for these webinars. Participation will be available on a first come, first-served basis and we can accommodate up to 10,000 attendees in each session.
