Financial aid offices are busy! That much we know. But in order to benchmark and help aid administrators know whether they’re staffed up relative to their peers, or getting paid enough, we need more schools to complete our Staffing and Salary Survey to produce statistically valid and helpful data. To date, we have not received enough responses to this survey to produce our NASFAA Staffing Model. NASFAA is extending the survey deadline until Wednesday, January 25, in an effort to gain enough responses to be able to produce our Staffing Model. If you are not the Primary Contact at your institution, we encourage you to reach out to that person and encourage them to complete this survey. If you have any questions, please contact NASFAA’s Research Department.
