Did I just hear the institutional match is not required? If so, will this be passed on to the institutions in writing since the agreement that is signed states we must have the match.
Lee Nimocks, CPE
52:46
Yes. We'll be sending something out to each participating campus this week.

One additional comment on ECE AID - they will only accept referrals from HEIs or other organizations and don't accept transcripts submitted by students directly
John Sunnygard WKU
01:17:33
Can we use Recruitment allocation to pay for WES or ECE credential evaluation? I know that ECE AID is free.
Nele Feldmann
01:17:53
ECE Aid should be for free as long as they have fee waivers available

For documentation on "Displaced Student" category. Item two states "submitted US asylum application." Does the application need to be approved?
Priscilla Ayala
01:21:21
Or just submitted
Priscilla Ayala
01:21:49
Additionally, given the sensitivity of the documents handled. Are there any guidelines for document management compliance for storage of said documents?
Priscilla Ayala
01:22:11
Thank you for the clarification
Nele Feldmann

One more comment on WES Gateway, it is limited to certain student populations: WES works with designated partners to identify individuals who are eligible for the Gateway Program. The program is available to individuals educated in Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, and Venezuela, who meet program requirements.
Priscilla Ayala
01:25:49
Sorry if this has already been discussed but I wanted to make sure our team got it on the notes: Are there any best practices/ideas for reaching out to individuals in these situations? Can anyone speak to successful and inclusive approaches to disseminating information about opportunities like this opportunity? We want to be very intentional on how we identify students who would qualify for this pilot.
