It’s been three years since the launch of NASFAA's Certified Financial Aid Administrator® Program. This year, we focused on recertification and supporting the community of FAACs. Of the first cohort of FAACs eligible for renewal by the end of the fiscal year, nearly 80% renewed their designation. More than 40 of them renewed having earned well above 100 recertification points, qualifying for special benefits as members of the new 100+ Club. They were joined by 50 new FAACs from across the country for a total of 304 FAACs in all six regions and 45 states by the end of the year. NASFAA's Professional Credential program also continues to grow as members earn new credentials and renew existing credentials. By the end of this fiscal year, more than 28,770 credentials were earned or renewed; 8,488 professionals earned at least one credential; and 234 top credential earners earned all available NASFAA Professional Credentials.
