  • Enrollment Wizard – A while back, we changed our process slightly, adjusting the timing of when we run the enrollment wizard. By delaying this process, we found out that the student does not have the Orientation Class loaded in Canvas. This is preventing them from logging in and getting a feel for how classes will work.
    From this point forward, please run the enrollment wizard as part of your “Awards Out” criteria.
  • Shared Drive – Use the shared drive! This is extremely important for several reasons. Erin brought up another great reason, they use it when they need to send something to CFA and it makes it easier for them. PLEASE use it!
  • Overlapping Loan Period – If NSLDS and COD show an end date for loans that would make it an overlapping loan period, but the loans have all been cancelled/zeroed out, we treat it like normal, not a 4 or 8-month overlap. If the loans have been cancelled then there is no loan period to deal with
  • SNAP and Adding to ISIR – If we have agency proof of SNAP for a student is selected for verification – requiring that we verify SNAP benefits, we DO NOT require a statement to accompany the agency proof. The FP can make the correction to that ISIR with the agency proof. (Ryan Perry – 5/2/16)

  • Uploading Student Documents – As a common courtesy to the auditors and CFA please make sure to have the students docs (ID, SSC, and POG) the right side up before sending to audit. Rotate them if they are upside down or sideways.
  • Step 3 of 5 when using Enrollment Wizard – We have been told to use the start date and Q when putting the term and billing in but L-Dene has verified that we leave the “Start Term” blank. Please see below:docs
  • Italicized Info on Audit Email – If there is an italicized note on your audit pass email please correct it. It will not cause a failure but it does need to be corrected.
  • Adding SNAP to ISIRs – We do need a permission statement from the student in order to correct the ISIR to say yes to SNAP, if they are selected for verification.
  • Parent PLUS Credit Check – The Parent PLUS Credit Check needs to be run within 180 days. If you have a PLUS result that is older than 180 days please run it again.
  • Split Award Years for Pell and SEOG– It is that time of year again when Pell and SEOG need to have a 15-16 disbursement and a 16-17 disbursement. If you have questions, please refer to Erin Anderson’s screen shot email.
  • April MOD Pell– Now that we are down to one disbursement of Pell for 15-16 we can use 2888 instead of the 2887.
  • Laptop Passwords Required Now – Passwords are required now for the HP 450s. It is “student” all lowercase. These laptops are for the Computer Science and Web Design laptops. Students may call and ask you what it is, so now you know.
