NEWS FROM NASFAA

The Department of Education (ED) on Tuesday began its latest attempt to forge a path toward student loan cancellation through negotiated rulemaking, or “neg reg”— a regulatory process that brings together stakeholders from the higher education community with the goal of reaching consensus on regulatory language.

NASFAA has drafted comments on the Department of Education’s (ED) proposed 2024-25 FAFSA, providing feedback on the format and content of the form, including recommendations for improving questions and instructions. These draft comments are intended for NASFAA members to use to inform their own comments, and are subject to change before submission. We encourage members to comment by October 16, 2023 and to share their comments with us at [email protected].

NASFAA UPDATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

We've all had good customer service experiences, and those that left a lot to be desired. While financial aid is a student service function with customers at its core, aid administrators also must follow a plethora of rules that can come across as not customer-friendly. Tune into this webinar, today at 2 p.m. ET, to learn how to balance following the rules with providing a positive customer experience. Register now and reserve your seat today!

Many schools do not have the capacity or resources to use NASFAA’s SAI Modeling Tool, which helps predict changes in financial need and Federal Pell Grant eligibility as a result of FAFSA simplification. NASFAA, through its consulting firm Blue Icon Advisors, will assist up to 50 schools in utilizing the tool at a significantly reduced price. This work is generously sponsored by a grant from Strada Education Foundation. Learn more about how to take the next steps.

There are still seats available during the current testing window, which remains open through the 21st of this month. Be sure to schedule your exam session soon to secure the time that works best for you. If you haven’t applied yet, take advantage of the waived application fee and complete your application online today. Learn more about the testing process and make sure you meet all of the technical requirements. Utilize these candidate resources to help you prepare for the exam. Can’t make it this time? The next testing window opens on November 1, 2023.
