Mission Statement:

The mission of AASFAA is to provide our members with the highest quality of personal and professional growth opportunities.  We do this by providing ongoing training and access to a broad network of financial aid professionals spanning all types of institutions.

President’s Update: 


I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you as your new AASFAA President for the 17/18 year. My name is Diana Dowling and I am the Associate Dean of Student Development at Yavapai College. I look forward to our year together and helping to train, network and grow as an organization. I’d also like to say thank you to our 17/18 AASFAA Board Members located here: http://www.aasfaa.org/executive-board-committees. I am looking forward to this year and all the great things we have to offer!

We will start with a federal update webinar with Bruce Honer on October 12th at 9:30 AM. All current AASFAA members will have free access to this webinar. Please save the date!

Next, we have the Drive Ins starting October 27th in Tucson, November 17th in Flagstaff and finally December 8th in Phoenix. We will be training on Consumer Information, R2T4 and Cost of Attendance. Stay tuned for more information! Also, please note that membership dues must be paid by 10/31/17 or the price for dues will increase to $100. So please do not forget to update your membership!

We announced the AASFAA logo contest in honor of AASFAA’s 50th Anniversary on social media, and have extended the deadline to October 31, 2017. Our old logo has served us well, but doesn’t fully reflect the spirit of our organization in the current day. Since AASFAA would not be as great as it is without our awesome members, we want you to be a part of creating a new logo that can serve us for the next 50 years! The winner will be selected by the cabinet and will receive a free registration to the Spring Conference as well as official recognition for their work.

So get creative, and submit your logos by September 30, 2017 to [email protected]. Final logos should be convertible into a usable web version and a scalable vector, print quality version of the logo. The logo must adapt well to electronic and print media, to reproduction on small and large surfaces, and to use in color or in grayscale. We can’t wait to see your submissions!

Once again, I look forward to working with you all/ Thank you for all of your contributions over the years, I truly believe the AASFAA members are what make our organization so great. Have a wonderful day.


Diana Dowling
2017-2018 AASFAA President

Important Membership Renewal Information

We recently upgraded our site to a new platform and there are some changes to how we manage our membership database and, in turn, our renewal. Each institution should have received a corrected invoice with a link to pay membership dues. Here are some tips to help you complete the Membership Renewal form:

  • Review each of your link member profiles to ensure there's no missing required information
  • If you cannot log into the form, you may not be your institution's designated Key Contact. If you need to be added as one, please email [email protected]

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

If you have not already, please ensure your institution has renewed their membership for 2017-2018 so that you do not miss out on future training events.
