HEAG’s Takeaways from NYSFAAA 2015

admin ., Financial Aid Industry News

HEAG was proud to be a part of the Fall 2015 NYSFAAA Conference held in Buffalo, NY.

Karyn Wright-Moore, HEAG’s Vice President of Compliance and Quality Assurance, andTammi White, HEAG Financial Aid Consultant, enjoyed the timely and informative sessions at this year’s conference. They also appreciated the time spent speaking with NY state financial aid administrators, as well. Below are a few questions and concerns we discussed with fellow aid administrators:

  • Will state grant requirements align with the federal prior prior year requirements to accommodate awarding and verification procedures?
  • How will the various Student Information and Financial Aid Management Systems deliver timely updates based on the new prior prior year requirements?
  • HESC will be requiring standardized award letters, in addition to, the shopping sheet for 2016-2017.
  • TAP audits may undergo changes based on new state ED regulatory changes.
  • Why is NYS STEM scholarship access limited to only CUNY and SUNY colleges?

Thank you to all the attendees who stopped by our booth to learn about HEAG’s new remote verification service, VERIFY, and our staffing and compliance services.
