Professional judgment and need analysis are terms familiar to all financial aid administrators. But did you realize how they complement each other -- like peanut butter and jelly? In this webinar, we will start with a very high level overview of both professional judgment and need analysis. Then we will take a deeper dive to examine how these two foundational concepts work together. For instance, when you make a professional judgment determination, how do you decide what type of adjustment to make. Do you adjust the student's or parents' adjusted gross income? Assets? Maybe you adjust a component of the cost of attendance. Would you achieve different results based on which of these options you choose? Join NASFAA's Amanda Sharp and David Tolman, along with Brad Barnett, Director of Financial Aid & Scholarships at James Madison University, as they explore some of the nuances of PJ and need analysis.
