CONFERENCE REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

 

Welcome to NYSFAAA                                         

Welcome to the NEW New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association website.

As all our memHoward Leslie, NYSFAAA Presidentbers know – we just celebrated our 5OTH anniversary this past October. What a great way to continue the celebration than to launch a new website with incredible functionalities. If you are a guest, we welcome you and hope you stick around, become a member and return frequently.

NYSFAAA is a non-profit organization comprised of nearly 1500 Financial Aid Professionals as well as other Higher Education Providers, such as High School College Bound Guidance Professionals. Our prime directive is to help promote equal access to education in New York State. We achieve this goal by advocating on behalf of our members and our students, and by providing aid professionals with extensive training.
 
As part of being in the NYSFAAA team/family, members enjoy full support and educate each other by networking and sharing information. Through our multiple list-serves, internal (private) and external (public) Social Media,  EmpireChat BLOG, Regional Meetings, 12 or more webinars a year AND NEW THIS YEAR  our regularly posted Podcasts (Webinars and Podcast FREE with the annual $70 membership fee). In addition, we have our nationally recognized Novice Training, Leadership Training, Annual Conference, and various other activities - so much, that you will find that the networking that occurs is always the cherry on the NYSFAAA cake that I and all of us are so proud of.

Members – enjoy the new website. If it looks somewhat familiar, that was our intention so you would log in and find yourself immediately at home. If it looks a little better organized, that was our intention as well. There are many things too important that were difficult to find on the old site. Just wait until you see what this baby can do!!!!

If you are not a member – trust me – IT PAYS TO BE A MEMBER. Join the family and have a blast with us as we do a whole bunch of training, networking and whatever we can for students.

 Life of the Loan with PSLF

 This session is designed for the financial aid administrator to develop a full understanding of federal loans. Betsy Mayotte, a nationally-recognized student loan expert, will take attendees through the origination of the loan, to servicing, through the repayment process. She will also spend time discussing loan repayment options, including a deep dive into Public Service Loan Forgiveness. Attendees will leave the session with increased knowledge of federal student loans, which will help in counseling parents, students and alumni.
