Mapping Your Future provides webinars on a variety of topics as a service to schools, sponsors, educators, and community organizations.

Verification: Dealing with the top issues for 2019-20

If you are a verification professional in the financial aid office, you deserve kudos for managing a complex issue. In order to manage the process, it requires that you keep up on any changes and it is helpful to learn from other professionals in the field. In the upcoming Mapping Your Future webinar, "Verification: Dealing with the top issues for 2019-20," financial aid professionals will describe how their schools are managing the verification process. During the April 23 webinar, Jennifer Martin from Johns Hopkins University and Catherine Boscher-Murphy from Montclair State University will provide information on verification requirements for 2019-20, including common comment codes and ISIR flags.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, April 23 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern, 10:00 a.m. Central, 9:00 a.m. Mountain, and 8:00 a.m. Pacific. Register at register.gotowebinar.com/register/3643432287303473420.
