2015 Fall Training
Loan Limits: Why They Matter
Exploring the 150% Subsidized Loan Limitation
and Other Loan Topics

--Webcast Registration Coming Soon--

WASFAA is partnering once again with NASFAA to offer top-quality training and resources on topics of importance and relevance to our association's membership. Developed by the NASFAA Annual Training Task Force, and presented by our seasoned financial aid professionals who are WASFAA Training Committee volunteers, this fall's training workshops will provide training and discussion on the 150% Subsidized Loan Limitation. Additional training modules created by the WASFAA Training Committee will further explore the current student loan landscape, including case studies, discussion on loan limits, and debt management strategies.

Participants will:

  • Determine how the 150% subsidized loan limitation is calculated and applied;
  • Explain when a student loses eligibility to borrow additional subsidized loans and loses the interest subsidy on previously received subsidized loans under the 150 percent Direct Loan Subsidized Loan limitation;
  • School reporting requirements to the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) and National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) systems;
  • Information about the limitation that must be provided during entrance and exit counseling;
  • How schools can advise students about the 150% subsidized loan limitation outside of entrance and exit counseling;
  • Exchange resources and best practices with colleagues.

This is the perfect opportunity to dive into 150% Subsidized Loan Limitation and have an open dialog with financial aid colleagues about the student loan landscape. Whether you're new to financial aid, or you simply want to know more about how your colleagues are handling the 150% Subsidized Loan Limitation and other loan topics, this workshop is for you!

For those who are unable to attend a workshop, the same material will be delivered in a live, instructor-led webcast December 10. Can’t attend on this date? Register anyway and still reap the benefit of this training; this webcast will be recorded and made accessible to paid registrants for approximately 6 months.
