In January 2015, as follow-up to its 2010 study, NASFAA surveyed financial aid professionals at its member institutions in an effort to better understand how ongoing regulatory changes are affecting college financial aid offices. The 2015 NASFAA Administrative Burden Survey (published April 2015) shows widespread concern about resource shortages felt by aid administrators. Further, trend data shows that these shortages are not short-term challenges, but rather permanent structural problems without foreseeable reprieve. This session will review the findings of the 2015 study, trends from 2010 to 2015, and related policy recommendations.
