Online NASFAA Credential Trainings

We have received requests to provide online NASFAA Credential Training sessions. We contacted NASFAA about this option and were told we could only offer the sessions in-person. If there is a particular topic you would like to attend but are unable to due to timing or location, please consider hosting a session at your institution. We will try to accommodate any specific topic requests based on trainers' availability in your area. Contact Danielle Hayden or Sarah Owen for more information on hosting a NASFAA Credential Training session.
