In an increasingly competitive marketplace, schools, especially at the graduate and professional level, are developing “innovative” new programs to fulfill their enrollment goals. Sometimes, the financial aid office is the last to know about these new programs. Sometimes, these new programs present challenging compliance problems. In this session, we will identify strategies for staying abreast of new program developments on campus and identify best practices for budgeting and awarding Title IV financial aid for students in these programs within the current regulatory framework.
