Importance of Team Building

“It’s a fact that people working as a team can achieve better results than individuals working alone.”

Team Activity

  • When I say go, list 10 body parts that have only 3 letters in them. You can’t use slang.

Use the Team Building Tool

Case Study findings

  • Return of Funds Made Late to Title IV Account

  • Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy Not Adequately Developed / Impaired Administrative Capability

  • Verification Incomplete

  • Title IV Accounts Not Reconciled

Finding 1 : Refund errors – incorrect calculation; refunds made late; or refunds not made

  • Incorrect calculation

    • Aid that could have been disbursed

    • Pro-rated institutional charges

    • Payment period or period of enrollment

  • Late determination of student withdrawal

    • No shows: students who never start

    • Students who vanish: no earned grades at the end of the term. Did the student finish the term?

Finding 2: SAP Policy Not Adequately Developed / Impaired Administrative Capability

  • Qualitative component

  • Quantitative component

    • How much work needs to be completed in each increment

      • Percentage of work attempted (credit hours)

      • Based on calendar time

    • Relates to maximum time to complete

Finding 2: SAP Policy Not Adequately Developed / Impaired Administrative Capability

  • Maximum time to complete

  • Must evaluate all periods of attendance

  • Stopping out does not restore progress

  • Complete records of all academic work attempted must be maintained

  • Document implementation

Finding: 3 – Verification Incomplete

  • Verification requirements specified in regulation

  • Verification documentation may reveal conflicting data. This may not be a required verification item, but must be resolved

  • Mind the details

  • If you have a verification finding, try to figure out why

  • Review requirements regularly

Finding: 4 – Title IV Accounts Not Reconciled

  • Reconciling the federal funds bank account does not complete the reconciliation process

  • Compare Financial Aid Office, Business Office and ED (COD) records

  • Role of servicers


  • If we can find it – so can you

  • Use the Assessments to fix problems before they are identified through an audit or a program review

  • Team Approach to the assessments is critical

  • Use the Management Enhancement as a corrective action plan and track progress

We appreciate your feedback and comments.
