NASFAA recently made updates to the Statement of Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct. Each day we are faced with decisions as financial aid professionals that call into question our ethical principles. This interactive session will help you conduct a self-analysis and reflect on issues such as accepting gifts, conflicts in time management, advocating for students when federal and state regulations are at odds with each other, and more. Get acquainted with the Statement of Ethical Principles and review case studies that bring into focus the difficult decisions we often struggle with while assisting students in fulfilling their educational aspirations.
