admin ., Financial Aid Industry News

NASFAA recently announced the launch of NASFAA University, a new learning program for financial aid professionals. NASFAA University will be rolled out during the next few months through multiple learning formats. This five part training program consists of:

  • Complete an independent study on specific topics using a Self study guide.
  • Take an instructor-led online course.
  • Demonstrate five or more years of variable work experience (details coming soon)
  • Attend a state or regional boot camp that uses the approved NASFAA University curriculum (coming in 2013)
  • Receive personal training via NASFAA University On-Site Services (coming in 2012)

After completing this training program, the aid administrator will be allowed to sit for an examination.

This program provides a nationally-recognized standard in financial aid training which will give the administrator a professional credential, attesting to their achievement. More information about this program can be found at www. I think this is a good first step, what do you think?
