Rules of Engagement with Institutions

NASFAA's Code of Conduct states that "No amount of cash, gift, or benefit in excess of a de minimis amount shall be accepted by a financial aid staff member from any financial aid applicant (or his/her family), or from any entity doing business with or seeking to do business with the institution (including service on advisory committees or boards beyond reimbursement for reasonable expenses directly associated with such service)." In some interactions between associate and institutional members, what's acceptable and what's not may be pretty cut and dry, but others might fall into more of a gray area. To help take the guesswork out of these interactions, NASFAA offers the following guidelines:

  • Gifts/giveaways should not exceed a value of $20.
  • Joining each other for meals is a standard business practice. If an associate member is to pay for the meal, it should not exceed $20 for breakfast/lunch and $60 for dinner.
