>Lorain County Community College (LCCC) recently moved to two disbursements of student loans per term in an attempt to increase student success while decreasing student loan fraud and default. This session will detail the campus wide engagement process used, mechanics of changing to multiple disbursements in a term, implementation of midterm grades including a Failure Administrative Withdrawal (FAW), and the communication strategy implemented to notify students. This action project crossed several departments and took a team effort creating greater synergy towards student success and creating greater awareness of the role financial services plays.
