The Department of Education (ED) in an electronic announcement on Friday evening provided additional information on three key components of its “FAFSA College Support Strategy,” and also committed to releasing test versions of Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs) by no later than February 16, 2024.
Meet Dr. Kimberley Willis, director of financial aid at The College at Brockport State University of New York. Kimberley has worked in higher education since 1999 but only recently made the transition to financial aid at the tail end of 2019. Prior to that, Kimberley was working in the registrar’s office at SUNY Geneseo, but she decided to jump into the world of financial aid after being prompted by some colleagues.
It depends. According to guidance NASFAA has received from the U.S. Department of Education (ED), prior guidance will be changing effective with the 2024-25 award year due to changes under the FAFSA Simplification Act. As in the past, the disclosure of FAFSA data with another office or individual depends entirely on the data being shared and how that individual or office intends to use that data.

NASFAA, with its partner Blue Icon Advisors, is working closely with the Department of Education to help under-resourced institutions get ready to receive and review ISIRs in March. We need experienced financial aid professionals to serve as an emergency corps of consultants for remote assignments.
