NASFAA U Courses

Monday, June 24, 2019 12:30 - 3:30 PM

NASFAA U will offer two in-person courses during the 2019 National Conference: Satisfactory Academic Progress and Administrative Capability. Those who attend one of the two pre-conference NASFAA U sessions will receive a test voucher at the end of the training session. Attendance is a requirement for exam access.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

This course provides an overview of satisfactory academic progress (SAP) concepts and guides the learner through evaluating SAP, appeals, and additional policy considerations. Quick quizzes, learning activities, and reflection questions help reinforce content and help individuals understand SAP.

Administrative Capability

Administrative capability is at the heart of the Title IV regulations, encompassing many of the measures of an institution’s Title IV eligibility. Demonstrating administrative capability to participate in the Title IV programs involves virtually every office within an institution, making compliance a campus-wide commitment and responsibility.

Student Mental Health: Promoting, Responding and Partnering

Monday, June 24, 2019 1:30 - 3:30 PM

The college years are the time when many significant mental health conditions first manifest, and they can be a time of significant stress and pressure for students. Student mental health has become the number one public health issue on college campuses.  College and university faculty and staff are interacting with more students in distress than ever before. This session will focus on:

  • Creating a welcoming environment for all students, including students with mental health conditions
  • Defining a mental health disability and possible reasonable accommodations needed within a financial aid office environment
  • Learning how to identify and respond to students in distress
  • Identifying campus partners to address the needs of students in distress
