Hello NYSFAAA Members and Community,

 On behalf of the Exec Council of the New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association, I would like to welcome you to our website. We are a group of Student Financial Aid professionals who work and serve in communities within New York State. We follow our mission of “advocating for and promoting equal access to post-secondary education for all students.” Each NYSFAAA member embraces the core values of our organization. The heart of those core values is to be an organization that is unified in its representation, provide the means of communication to the financial aid professionals, and equip you by delivering professional development.

For fifty-two years NYSFAAA has advocated for the increase of both federal and state aid for our students. Our member volunteers work with high schools within our communities to conduct successful FAFSA nights, while advocating in our state and local representatives’ offices in the morning.

If you are visiting our website, we would like to welcome you to browse around and enjoy the site. If you are a member and part of the Higher Education community or a High School Guidance Counselor, we ask you to consider joining a committee. If you are not yet a NYSFAAA member, then we ask that you join us by becoming a member today.

We are currently living in an era where ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic disparities along with other biases have taken over the news of the day. The global pandemic, COVID-19 has increased these issues.  NYSFAAA members are not immune to these crises and while networking to find solutions and advocating for change we will continue to bring a new vision into focus as we walk into our future.

I am honored to be your President and ask that we work together with the Exec Council and our committees in bringing a new vision forward.

Adrienne R. King, MsED

NYSFAAA President

The New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association, Inc. will hold its 50th annual Novice Training Workshop from Monday, June 7 - Friday, June 11, 2021 in a virtual format.  Each day will consist of a half day of training throughout the course of the week.

This workshop has been primarily designed for financial aid personnel with less than one year of experience.  We encourage admissions and enrollment management personnel, as well as others who would like to gain a complete, comprehensive understanding of financial aid administration to enroll.        

Training is structured informal, large group presentations and informal small discussion groups.  This gives participants a detailed overview of each topic, followed by the opportunity to discuss special points of interest and to apply their new knowledge using case studies.  All participants are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity for professional growth through group and individual interaction.

 

 

The 2021 Conference Committee is working hard to bring you a fabulous virtual conference

Please save the following dates – October 26 – 28

About this event

When the COVID waivers are lifted, experts are expecting a significant increase in student loan delinquencies and defaults. With 40 million borrowers entering repayment at the same time, during a once-in-a-century economic crisis, it is expected that loan servicers and the Department of Education will be overwhelmed, leaving some vulnerable borrowers with difficulty accessing sound and expert advice on how to manage their student debt. Schools will become and even more important resource to these borrowers, making it all the more important to ensure school staff fully understand all things related to student loan repayment.

Completing this course will allow you confidently handle 99% of the student loan situations you may encounter and allow you to support your students and alumni

Offered in a nine-hour “boot camp” or broken up over three days, the program covers:

Understanding the various federal, private and other student loan programs

Deferments, forbearances, consolidation, and refinancing

Repayment options (includes all five income-driven plans, two others you probably have never heard of as well as the other repayment plans available)

Public Service Loan Forgiveness and other forgiveness and discharge options

Managing and resolving delinquency and default (includes how to navigate disputes and other resources)

Presented by Betsy Mayotte, a nationally recognized student loan expert with over 20 years of experience in student loan policy and advocacy, this series weeds out the “will probably never encounter” from the “must-know” for busy financial planners and wealth management experts. 

Many experts in the community expect, at a minimum – BIG PROBLEMS. We thought these articles might be of great interest to you:
