Ready. Set. Grad Website. State & Regional Associations. NASFAA works in partnership with six regional associations of financial aid administrators to deliver excellence in student aid administration.

State & Regional Associations

These regional associations in turn work closely with state associations representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Pacific Islands. While we work at the national level, state and regional associations play an important role in advocating for and serving students in their communities. We support local associations through activities such as: Avoiding Scams. Before you apply for financial aid, learn how to spot potential fraud, avoid paying for free services, and prevent identity theft.
