The Student Eligibility for Title IV aid workshop involves more than the basics of filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The workshop will help you understand that a student must meet certain criteria to be eligible to receive financial aid. Attend the workshop and make sure you can show your employer that you know the Title IV program-specific eligibility requirements. This course will be taught by Emily Haynam-Janero, Assistant Director of Compliance and Training at The Ohio State University. Emily is a NASFAA Credentialed Instructor and completing the course will qualify you to take the NASFAA certification test for Student Eligibility. Participants will be given a voucher to take the related credentialing test. More details provided at the workshop.

  • Know the general student eligibility criteria and documentation requirements;
