NEWS FROM NASFAA

The Department of Education this weekend has begun its soft launch of the overhauled 2024-25 FAFSA, during which time the application will be available to students and families periodically as the department pulls the form down from time to time to perform maintenance and address any potential issues.

NASFAA’s webinar series had a significantly positive impact for attendees and covered topics related to FAFSA simplification, verification, timely updates from the policy team, and much more. NASFAA’s webinars consisted of at least monthly online events, and were meticulously designed to engage, educate, and inspire our audience. Interactivity was a key feature, with live Q&A sessions and polls enhancing participant engagement. Read on for a recap of our five most-attended webinars for 2023 (based on their live and on-demand attendees) and be sure to check out all our recorded webinars which are accessible to our audience on demand.

NASFAA UPDATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

The ownership of a qualified education benefit (529 prepaid tuition plans or Coverdell Education Savings accounts) determines how the asset is reported on the FAFSA. The FAFSA Simplification Act made changes with regard to how ownership of a qualified education benefit is determined for FAFSA purposes or how the asset is reported on the FAFSA.
