With the rise of online graduate programs and the desire of schools to streamline orientation, many financial aid administrators have found their role in orientation changing. Are more schools moving toward a ‘pre-orientation’ format? Are online webinars and chats playing a new or bigger role in orientation? This session will provide an overview of formats that graduate/professional aid administrators are using as part of (or in place of) orientation.
