After at least 50,000 students across the country experienced the closure of their college or career school, NASFAA, with funding from the Lumina Foundation, has been connecting students with financial aid administrators who can help them navigate the process. This grant has provided the means to produce a policy recommendations paper, as well as a website that will provide assistance to students looking for answers to their financial aid concerns. This session will present our policy recommendations, and examine the development and consumer testing of our informational website.
