This is a general discussion forum for the following learning topic:

Regulatory Compliance - Outside the Financial Aid Office --> The Roles of Compliance Team Members

Post what you've learned about this topic and how you intend to apply it. Feel free to post questions and comments too.

My take away from this section is the need to have strong teams, have good communication and ensure that no on department operate in a vacuum.  

It is extremely important that everyone work as a team to stay in compliance.

Front-line administrators have the best grassroots information on how campus procedures and policies are working.

It is so important that everyone knows what there tasks and has a understanding in general how everyone works in this arena. 


It is very important that all Officer that works with students knows the regulations, procedures that impact in all aspect of Financial Aid.

Teamwork is the key in passing compliance regulations. The work cannot be done by just one department or one person. Success can be achieved by conserted effort of everybody within the institution.

Being team-oriented is going to play a big role in passing compliance regulations. Each person must know their role. 

Recognizing front-line staff and the importance they play in the interactions with students and prospective students and how they uphold the policy and procedures put in place.  

The financial officer recommends to the CEO about Compliance Team


Though the FAD holds the largest responsibility in overseeing and handling many issues related to FSA, it takes a team composed of many "capable individuals". These individuals should hold regular quarterly meetings to update the team of current issues and offer an opportunity to discuss current policies and procedures. Should policy/procedure revision be needed, the team should address deficiencies and foster compliance regulations to rectify any issues.

I learned that our school should have a Compliance Team that has quarterly meetings for the administrative employees.

Compliance is a team effort.

Every department should work as a team 

A través de este contenido, aprenderá que los administradores de primera línea tienen información importante sobre los procedimientos y políticas del campus. La experiencia directa con los estudiantes puede ayudarle a determinar qué políticas son efectivas y cuáles podrían necesitar cambios o ajustes. Por lo tanto, es importante involucrar a los gerentes de todos los niveles en la revisión de las políticas y procedimientos administrativos.

Además, se enfatiza la importancia de los oficiales de ayuda financiera en la construcción de una cultura de cumplimiento dentro de la institución. Su función es comunicar a toda la comunidad la importancia del área para asegurar el cumplimiento institucional. Esto incluye trabajar con la alta dirección, las oficinas del campus, los profesores y el personal para garantizar que todos sean conscientes de su papel en el cumplimiento de la política.

Comment on Katheryn Bugarin's post: This is a great way to put it! Everyone has to do their part to be in compliance. 

Compliance is a group effort and it is a good idea to have meetings so that everyone is aware of the policies and procedures.
