Welcome to ISFAA

Hello all ISFAA members, I look forward to a great year, and excited to see what the year will bring us.  I am Ron Herrell and you have given me the honor to serve as ISFAA President for the 2024-2025 year.

ISFAA’s mission is to cultivate talent of financial aid administrators in Indiana, promote communication and collaboration among its members across the state, and advance and share best and promising practices consistent with standards in the field.

ISFAA’s vision is to be a dynamic, affordable, broadly representative member-driven organization providing advocacy, mentorship, and professional development for its members to promote and advance the field of financial aid administration in the state of Indiana through intentional engagement with students, families, and other stakeholders.

I look forward to working with you towards another great year along with the board.  We cannot do this without our amazing volunteers.  To those that have served on a committee before, thank you!  If you would like to join a committee and begin your journey in serving on an ISFAA committee you can do so by filling out the volunteer form on Volunteer (isfaa.org).

I look forward to an amazing year!


Ron Herrell

ISFAA President



The Indiana Student Financial Aid Association (ISFAA) is Indiana’s financial aid professional organization. We are an association of college and university financial aid administrators, lenders, guarantors, and other associated organizations and individuals interested in helping students meet their costs for higher education.

ISFAA serves the needs of students, institutions of higher education, government agencies, and private funding sources through community outreach, coordination and development of programs for student financial aid. To accomplish this purpose, ISFAA promotes the professional preparation, effectiveness and recognition of all those concerned with the administration of student financial aid. In addition, ISFAA assists with communications between institutions of post-secondary education and sponsors of student financial aid to encourage best practices.

The Association serves as the state forum and acts as the focus for the expression of views on matters relating to the development, funding, and administration of student financial aid at the state, regional, and national levels. The primary intent of the ISFAA website is to serve the members of the association, although we eagerly want to help all who are interested in information about financial aid availability and attempt to do so through the resources and links herein.
