NEWS FROM NASFAA

The last year was filled with challenges and successes for the financial aid community as it dealt with another year of operating amid the coronavirus pandemic. A new year ushered in optimism and saw students return to campus following extended remote learning. The Biden administration sought to make an immediate impact on higher education and financial aid with additional federal coronavirus relief packages, which included significant changes to the FAFSA and increased flexibilities for aid offices in the form of verification relief and updates to the use of professional judgment. Here are the top 10 articles NASFAA readers consumed in 2021.

NASFAA UPDATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

You don't. The 45-day timeframe does not apply in this scenario. According to guidance NASFAA has received from the U.S. Department of Education (ED): "For schools that perform R2T4 on a payment period basis and a student is enrolled in both modules and full-term courses, the 45-day timeframe does not apply since the full-term course is treated like a module for the term in question where the student is (or was) expected to be enrolled for the entire payment period." View the full answer to this question to learn more.

Is professional development one of your New Year's resolutions? Start off strong by registering for New Director Group Coaching with NASFAA's Blue Icon Advisors. Group coaching is ideal for financial aid administrators with less than one year of experience at the director level. You'll work alongside a small group of other new financial aid directors as you discuss compliance-related matters, develop an operational calendar, learn about how to identify and support your staff's professional development needs, and draft a strategic plan to work toward and bolster the goals and activities of your office. The start date for the next six-week cohort is January 17. Register today to reserve your spot.
