Schools must have reasonable standards for measuring a student’s
satisfactory academic progress toward their degree or certificate
completion and the reasonable standard must be in accordance with
regulatory actions (HEA Sec. 484(c),CFR 668.34). This session is
intended as a discussion with an outcome that we know where to “cite”
the “Reg” and find resource materials, that we will be more confident
that we have “reasonable” standards, and that we are in compliance.

The Communication Conundrum! Facebook, E-mail, Twitter, oh my! This
session will be interactive and will attempt to answer the question on best
practices to communicate with students/parents/staff, and it will offer
resources and tools on how to communicate with a “connected” generation.
Everyone has a cell phone; most receive notifications of emails, Facebook
messages, and tweets directly to their phone. So, why does information that is
sent or shared go unnoticed or unread? How can you motivate
students/parents/staff to read information being shared?

The HEA requires institutions to disclose certain information as part of Title
IV participation. There is a wide range of disclosures. These disclosures often
require information from offices across the institution, not just the financial
aid office. Section 132(h) of the HEA states: “Each institution of higher
education that receives Federal funds under title IV shall make publicly
available on the institution’s website a net price calculator to help current
and prospective students, families, and other consumers estimate a student’s
individual net price at such institution of higher education.” The goal of this
session is to help you become aware of the regulation and where to go for
resources to help yourself and others on your campus remain in compliance.
