Clock-Hour Programs Toolkit

NASFAA recognizes that different programs have to follow different regulations. We have compiled this toolkit for institutions with clock-hour programs. If you have any suggestions on how to improve this toolkit, please let us know by emailing [email protected].

AskRegs Questions

AskRegs is a searchable, reliable Knowledgebase of answers to financial aid administrators' questions, maintained exclusively for NASFAA members. For this clock-hour programs toolkit, we’ve opened the following questions to the public.

These questions and answers are just the tip of the iceberg. A quick search for "clock-hour" in the AskRegs Knowledgebase turns up 92 questions submitted by NASFAA members, with corresponding answers provided by NASFAA staff. To see more clock-hour Q&As in AskRegs, log in using your NASFAA credentials. (Not a NASFAA member? Join today.)

Student Aid Reference Desk Resources

The Ref Desk compiles resources related to the administration of student aid programs with direct links to federal regulation, legislative text, and U.S. Department of Education guidance, as well as interpretation and analysis from policy organizations, institutions, researchers, and groups focused on student access and success in higher education.
