NASFAA's Financial Aid Night Toolkit has recently been updated with information for the 2023-24 academic year and is now available to assist NASFAA members in conducting or providing support for financial aid night presentations. In the toolkit you'll find a slideshow designed to give students and families a basic understanding of financial aid concepts, sources of financial aid, and the application process for federal student aid. The toolkit also contains a guide to planning and conducting a financial aid night, as well as updated versions of supplemental student and parent handouts to help you give a compelling and informative presentation. The content may be presented in person or virtually.

That's where Blue Icon Advisors can come in to help, with a team of independent consultants who have a background in creating and reviewing P&Ps.
