What is NASFAA Credentials?

NASFAA Credentials is a nationally recognized standard in financial aid training and allow you to earn recognition when you master a specific financial aid topic. There are currently 17 credential topics. During the spring pre-conference at Madden’s, MAFAA will be offering credentialing for Administrative Capability.
To be credentialed in Administrative Capability you will:

  • 1) attend the MAFAA Pre-conference workshop

  • 3) take the credential test within 3 months of attending this workshop (Note you do not need to be a NASFAA member to attend or take the test)

The MAFAA pre-conference is offered by our Masters Leadership Participants This year MAFAA revamped our Master’s Program. It is now a two-year program and has 3 main components. The first component is for the participants to earn a NASFAA credentialed and then present to other MAFAA members so they can prepare to be credentialed.
