Awarding processes at various schools


Wvc ffelp to direct loans
WVC -- FFELP to Direct Loans

  • WVC switched from FFELP to Direct Loans beginning with Summer 2008.

  • We made the switch in just a couple weeks.

  • We got some assistance and tips from Jane @ Spokane

  • We did some legal stuff, paperwork, configured EDE, set up report options on COD, got passwords for websites, set up web site options and made the big change within just a couple weeks.  VERY smooth process!

  • There were some initial holdups with getting reports set up, links between COD/Direct Loans, but were resolved fairly quickly. No problems since.

  • That first Summer quarter, we ran both FFELP and Direct loans simultaneously. Those with new loans, we used Direct, those who just wanted to add another quarter, we continued to use FFELP. Worked fine.

  • ALL students were required to do Entrance Counseling and an MPN for their first Direct loan at WVC. After that first time, all that’s required is to fill out our short 1 page worksheet.

Set up a Disbursement Profile

Disbursement profiles are specific to one campus. If you are using EDExpress with multiple campuses, you must set up separate disbursement profiles for each campus.

You must set up separate disbursement profiles for PLUS, subsidized, and unsubsidized loans, if you process subsidized or unsubsidized loans with more than four disbursements.

You can print a report of all your disbursement profile setups using the new List-Disbursement Profile Setup report.
