NASFAA’s Board of Directors on Thursday received an update on the work of the Prior-Prior Year (PPY) Implementation Task Force and shared some thoughts on upcoming challenges with regard to implementing the Early FAFSA.
Task Force Chair Rachelle Feldman of the University of California-Berkeley shared the task force’s recent work on the PPY Implementation Toolkit, which features a chart that outlines what data elements will and will not change under a move to PPY and an open letter to be shared with partners on campus that provides bulleted points about what the move to PPY means for schools as a whole, including considerations about when to make award offers and whether to change admissions decision deadlines. She also updated the board on NASFAA’s PPY Meme Contest, which closes March 1.
During a discussion about implementing PPY and the Early FAFSA, the board discussed how it would impact professional judgements, verification, deadlines for award letters, and working with other campus offices to ensure a smooth transition and best serve students.
The PPY Task Force will continue its work through March 2017. Stay tuned to Today’s News for more information on PPY and keep an eye out for additional resources in our Toolkit as they become available!
