Event Description
ISAC is excited to once again offer in-person Financial Aid 101 and 201 Workshops for financial aid administrators. These free, full-day workshops will begin in June, and will be offered throughout the summer months, with the first round being offered June 20 and 21 at the ISAC Springfield office and June 28 and 29 at the ISAC Deerfield office. In addition to covering a variety of financial aid topics, these sessions will also focus on the phased implementation of the FAFSA Simplification Act and the changes going into effect for the 2023-24 and 2024-25 award years.

The Financial Aid 101 Workshop (FA 101) will provide an introduction to basic financial aid concepts, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), and need analysis, as well as an overview of state and federal financial aid programs. This workshop will also review the 2024-25 Draft FAFSA and related changes to application processing, including the transition from using the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) to the Student Aid Index (SAI) for determining financial need.

The Financial Aid 201 Workshop (FA 201) will cover the topics of verification, professional judgment, satisfactory academic progress, and state and federal program reviews. In addition, changes related to implementation of the FAFSA Simplification Act and the impact on financial aid policies and procedures will be reviewed and discussed.

Due to limited seating, registration is required. Register for the dates and locations that work best for your schedule by clicking on the corresponding "Register Now" buttons, below. Directions to workshop locations are also provided on the registration page for each workshop.
