Winter Terms & Financial Aid

Posted By University of Louisville, Thursday, March 1, 2018


Hello everyone,

I am writing to ask about federal financial aid and winter terms. First, for those of you that have run a winter term (specifically a "term" that is set up as its own term, not a session) did you anchor your financial aid to Spring or Fall per DOE guidelines?

Secondly, can you tell me if you use PeopleSoft for financial aid management?

Looking for survery participants for compensation study

Posted By Brian Degon, Sunday, January 21, 2018
Updated: Sunday, January 21, 2018

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has partnered with Sibson Consulting, an independent national human capital consulting firm with a special focus in higher education, to administer and conduct a short survey on online & distance education faculty pay practices at select colleges and universities. Sibson is administering the questions through an online questionnaire. We were hoping that you, or another member of your staff, could spend 15-20 minutes to complete this survey. These questions will explore the pay practices, guidelines, and criteria for compensation of faculty who teach online or distance education courses.  If you are able to answer these questions in the context of the entire academic year, please do so; if you can only answer with respect to summer courses, please note this in the final question (a free-form text box for additional comments).


All data submitted will remain strictly confidential. You may participate in the questionnaire online using the link provided below:


If you need to complete the questionnaire in multiple sittings, you will be able to save your progress and continue inputting your responses at a later time. The submission deadline is Friday, February 2. At the end of the study, we will provide you with a summary report of findings. We appreciate any time and assistance you can provide us. If you have any questions, please contact Carolyn at or 212-251-5938.

Thanks so much and we hope you will participate in this important study.

Summer Session/Winter Session Guidebooks?

Posted By Claire Napoletano, Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Hi Everyone!

Do any of you have a summer session guide or other materials that you distribute to deans, department heads, and office administrative staff with logistical information on summer or winter sessions-- a guide for building sections, minimum enrollments, pay rates, timelines for different processes, etc.?    

If so, what information is included?  Do you hold in-person or web training sessions to help staff learn how to do successfully their part in creating and running summer/winter courses?

Thanks in advance for any expertise you have to share.  Wishing all a happy holiday season and some restful time away from the office!
