NASFAA Self-Study Guides are the answer to your training needs. Written for the independent learner, each Self-Study Guide includes multiple lessons with a variety of exercises to reinforce each lesson. You'll study independently and take quizzes in a traditional paper format (not online). Then you can qualify to take the related credential test and potentially earn a NASFAA Professional Credential.
Any Self-Study Guide purchase made by someone at your institution is available for download by any roster member. Items that are available without purchase will display "Access" and link to a location to download from this and the purchase page. Learn more about our Self-Study Guides on our FAQs page.
In addition to accessing your Self-Study Guide as a PDF, NASFAA members can now view your guide in an interactive e-Reader format, through the RedShelf platform. The new e-Reader format offers members the ability to highlight, take notes, and create flashcards right in your Self-Study Guide. To get started, visit our FAQs page.
For individuals new to the financial aid profession, NASFAA suggests moving through the credentials in the order shown.
