Welcome from Ben!


The mission of SWASFAA is to enhance the professional development of financial aid administrators. Over the next year, our board will work hard to bring the trainings and resources that you and your team needs to be successful.

Last year, we assembled to honor the super heroes in our profession. In 2023, we will continue to celebrate the great work that financial aid administrators do each and every day.

Our 2023 committees are developing membership benefits and opportunities to best serve you. We’re also forming task forces to help identify ways to help specific populations of our membership.  

In the coming weeks we will announce our exclusive training events for the spring and summer. Be on the lookout for an April director event in New Orleans and boot camp opportunities for your new team members.

These events will build up to our Joint Conference with TASFAA to be held October 4-6 at the DFW Hyatt Regency.

If you’d like to help volunteer to help us, please do so here.

In the meantime, if our board can be of any service to you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes,

    SWASFAA is pleased to announce the 2023 Management Institute on April 3-4 in New Orleans, Louisiana! This workshop is not your traditional “conference.”  The days are designed to provide facilitated group work following each of the presentations.  This is an opportunity for each attendee to work in a group, discuss the presented materials, and develop a list of takeaways and/or action items that can be used at your institution.  In other words, the sessions are designed to be “hands on” and interactive.  You will learn from your peers as well as the presenters, which makes this a wonderful opportunity to find out what works at other institutions and brainstorm new strategies. 

    Registration is limited to 30 people, so don't delay in registering!

    For more information, please contact Amy Cable at amycable@lctcs.edu.
