CASFAA is pleased to provide a presentation on FAFSA Simplification with special guest speaker and nationally recognized financial aid expert, Mark Kantrowitz.

Takeaway 1: Learn how the FAFSA will be changing and how this will affect eligibility for need-based financial aid.
Takeaway 2: Understand the advantages and disadvantages of FAFSA simplification.
Takeaway 3: Review the new financial aid formula for the Federal Pell Grant.

Thank you for joining our 2021 CASFAA Virtual Mini-Conference. We had 621 attendees watching virtually across California!

We would like to acknowledge the technical difficulties we experienced in the 2021 CASFAA Virtual Mini-Conference. Thank you for communicating the issues you were experiencing in the audience and we apologize for the inconvenience. We know this was not an ideal experience for our members.

Due to audio issues we had during the FSA Update, you may find the FSA recording here https://fsatraining.ed.gov/login/index.php.  You will need to create a FSA Training Center account to login before accessing the Federal Update webinar video that can be watched online and/or downloaded for your convenience. There is also a pdf handout of the presentation available here.

At the end of the presentation there will be information on how to ask questions through the Help Center on Partner Connect.  Those questions related to policy and guidance are sent to Ask-A-Fed, where the training officers will respond to them.

Thanks again, we look forward to 2022 and hopefully back in-person!
