NASFAA Conference Update

TASFAA Friends,

Thank you to NASFAA for providing an excellent conference filled with a powerful agenda, networking opportunities, and student success stories to remind us why we do what we do.

Just a few highlights:

  • Please take a moment to read the student success stories referenced in the NASFAA news this morning.  Potential and passion are key reminders of why we do what we do everyday.
  • Federal Town Hall – Department of Education Update
    • Institutions need to have a policy in place for resolving high school diploma conflicts.
    • Dear Colleague Letters regarding financial data for enrollment management will be coming out soon.  ED has a team looking into this complex issue.


  • Negotiated Rule Making
    • Regulation – interprets the law and provides direction for implementation.
    • The FSA Handbook is a form of regulatory guidance which does not carry any legal weight, but it can carry penalties.
  • Cyber Security
    • No exceptions for security enforcement.
    • Protect the data.
    • Report the breaches.

If any of you would like a copy of my notes, please let me know via Email (, and I will provide you a copy when I return.

In closing, please take a moment to congratulate Lisa Blazer, UT San Antonio.  The gavel was passed to Lisa just a few moments ago to represent NASFAA as the National Chair.  On behalf of TASFAA, we extend many congratulations to Lisa.

Lisa 1

Thank you all for all you do for TASFAA!

Shannon Crossland
TASFAA President
