Our mission is to enhance the professional development of financial aid administrators.

Featured Sponsors:


Welcome from Mendy!

Financial aid administrators are often described as resourceful, dedicated, and because our industry demands it, flexible and adaptable to change. The challenges and opportunities that 2020 brought us have tested each and every one of those attributes, and in ways none of us could have ever imagined. However, as we all continue to gain our footing with changes in modes of instruction, our work environments, and all the various dynamics of getting our jobs done, SWASFAA’s highest priority remains to continue to find ways to meet the needs of its members, no matter what that looks like.

If you have any suggestions for how SWASFAA can provide what its members need, please don’t hesitate to contact me or one of your Board representatives or Committee Chairs.

My very best regards,

Mendy Schmerer

SWASFAA President, 2020 – 2021
