To learn more about the move to prior-prior year, visit our PPY resources center, which includes links to our press release, our quick and simple video schools can share to help students and families better understand how PPY will benefit them, and our more in-depth video explaining why this move to PPY will not only allow students to have earlier information in order to make enrollment decisions, but will also give financial aid administrators some relief from mounting administrative burden and ensure they have more time to spend counseling students.
NASFAA is committed to doing all we can to ensure a smooth transition to PPY for schools and students. In addition to beginning work with schools, Federal Student Aid (FSA), state grant agencies, and others to align practices, we are currently seeking volunteers to serve on a PPY Implementation Task Force to work with members and FSA in identifying implementation issues. Among other things, the task force will review all the questions and concerns we receive via online channels, and via email.
