Southern Living thinks YOU should attend the New Aid Officer Workshop

Thinking of attending the SASFAA New Aid Officer Workshop?  Imagine relaxing here with a cold glass of iced tea after a stimulating day of financial aid rules and regulations….as Southern Living says, “Sit and study a spell!”


You are cordially invited to join us June 3-8 on the beautiful campus of Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  We’ll save a rocking chair just for you, register today!



Registration for the 2018 SASFAA New Aid Officer Workshop is now OPEN!!

Join us as we solve the mystery of financial aid for new financial aid professionals with less than 5 years experience.

This week-long intensive training will use NASFAA materials and real examples from the Financial Aid Office to cover the basics of Title IV aid from A-Z.  The New Aid Officer Workshop is a highlight of many Financial Aid careers and offers new employees a strong base to handle their duties and to learn new concepts.
