Best Practices in Award Letters
Tue, October 1, 2019 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
In this session we will discuss NASFAA’s efforts, as well as proposed federal legislation, on improving financial aid award notifications. We’ll explore NASFAA’s award notification requirements in its member Code of Conduct, and suggestions from the Department of Education on what schools should avoid when designing financial aid offers. Finally, we will explore the new College Financing Plan and discuss the results of NASFAA’s consumer testing of various financial aid offer formats and templates.
