NASFAA's Business Services area includes Blue Icon Advisors, NASFAA's consulting service, and the Standards of Excellence (SOE) Review Program.
Blue Icon Advisors provides schools with high-quality consulting services. All our work has the backing of NASFAA's experience as a trusted advisor in providing top-notch training and compliance assistance. Blue Icon's team of experienced consultants are ready to help with compliance and operational evaluations and improvement plans; writing and reviewing policies and procedures; developing and delivering customized staff training; providing interim leadership, coaching and support; and consulting on financial aid and enrollment management issues.
For over 20 years, the SOE Review Program has helped hundreds of schools leverage their strengths, reduce compliance risks, and maximize performance. SOE reviews deliver a comprehensive evaluation of financial aid operations and help ensure compliance at every level. Members who have completed an SOE review say it mirrors a federal program review, but in a friendly way.
The full SOE review includes a Consumer Information Assessment, which we also offer as a stand-alone evaluation focused on compliance with disclosure and reporting requirements in nearly 20 different areas across campus.
