Crack out those Federal Student Aid Handbooks, the NASFAA National Conference is back! In kicking off NASFAA 2022, the first in-person national conference the association has had since 2019, members were able to re-engage with their colleagues to explore the varying ways in which they can succeed in an unpredictable environment that has pushed those in the profession to implement new skills.
For the first time in two years, NASFAA kicked off its annual national conference in person on Sunday with the announcement of a new, year-long initiative that will support member institutions, who helped support NASFAA as we weathered the challenges of the pandemic. The "NASFAA Gives Back" initiative will provide additional support for members as they continue to navigate ever-changing regulations and new challenges imposed by the pandemic, all while ensuring their students are best served throughout their higher education pathways.
No. According to guidance NASFAA has received from the U.S. Department of Education (ED), you cannot round up. The only potential allowance is if the school has an official excused absence policy and the excused absences allowed to be counted within our policy causes the student to reach 450 hours. See 34 CFR 668.4(e) and the discussion of excused absences in Volume 5 of the FSA Handbook. View the full answer to this question to learn more.
