Hello NYSFAAA Members and Community,

On behalf of the New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association (NYSFAAA) Executive Council, I would like to welcome you to our website. 

If this is your first time visiting, here are some important facts to know about NYSFAAA and where to find more information:  

            • We are members of a community – the financial aid community. We have been communicating, teaching, and growing as an organization since 1968
            • Check out all the training offered by going to the Training section above.  It’s pretty impressive!
            • We consist of 8 regions, all of which have volunteers in various roles to ensure our efforts are targeted and deliberate. 
            • You’ll find information on Regions in the About NYSFAAA section above.  What is your Region?
            • We participate in Student Aid Advocacy Day every year in Albany, and liaison with Regional (EASFAA) and National (NASFAA) Associations, which unifies us in our advocacy.  

Did I peak your interest?  I hope so.  Check out the NYSFAAA History page, and be inspired to become a member today. 

Already a member and want to get involved?  Contact your Regional representative or anyone on Executive Council.  Become a member, join a committee and maybe even run for one of the many leadership positions so you too can experience firsthand what makes us NYSFAAA strong!
