NASFAA U offers a nationally-recognized, consistent, and rigorous program of education in administering the Title IV student financial aid programs. Both new and seasoned financial aid professionals will benefit from a NASFAA U education.

The WFAA Summer training will feature two courses:

  1. Verification – learn the concepts of verification, including when verification is required, what elements are required to be verified, and other key elements of the verification process.

  2. Professional Judgment – guiding principles and assist in professional judgment application on your campus to navigate the explicit and implicit guidelines that must be followed in relation to other aspects of Title IV federal student aid administration.

Normally, these two courses would run $416 ($109 each for the study guides and $99 each to sit for the certification exam). The registration fee for this pre-conference training is only $40 for 17-18 WFAA members and $85 for non-WFAA members.

With your registration fee, you'll get:

  • Printed study guide for both courses.
  • Over three hours of instruction by a NASFAA-Credentialed WFAA colleague.
  • Opportunity to learn and collaborate with other financial aid professionals.
  • Federal and Washington State update from our associates at ED and WSAC.
  • Two chances to take and pass the NASFAA Certification exam.
  • The NASFAA Credential upon successful completion of the exam.

Don't miss out on this opportunity (the savings will more than cover the cost of conference registration)! Get quality training on these timely topics and save hundreds!
