FASFAA Webinars

In 2018-19, FASFAA began to offer a series of Webinars to members. The following archive recordings of the Webinars offered have been made available for your viewing. Recordings are intended for members of FASFAA only and should not be shared with non-members.


  • June 21st @ 2pm (EDT)- Min, Max, Mode and Mean!  Welcome to Pell 101 (or is it Algebra 101)?
    • Description: So many things about needs analysis and the determination of Pell are changing under the new FAFSA Simplification, and we will tackle them all in this session.  From determining whether a student is eligible for maximum Pell, minimum Pell or just calculated Pell, to determining how enrollment intensity impacts the amount of the Pell, to even understanding how the new SAI will work with the Pell Award (spoiler: goodbye Pell charts), you will want to attend this session to get an insight as to how the new Pell will work.  We will tackle specific student examples and look at the new SAI formula and some case studies associated with the changes from EFC to SAI.  If you work with need-based aid, or Pell particularly, you’ll want to make sure to catch this session; everything’s changing!
