Welcome to the Mississippi Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA) website.
MASFAA is composed of passionate, caring individuals from a wide-variety of institutions of higher education throughout the State of Mississippi.
Additionally, MASFAA boasts membership from federal and state financial aid agencies, federal loan guaranty agencies, and private student lending institutions among others.
The Mission Statement of MASFAA reads as follows:
The Mississippi Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, Inc. was founded to establish a financial aid community that encourages
the exchange of ideas and professional expertise to effectively and ethically promote access to higher education by meeting the diverse needs of our constituents (students, parents, and institutions).
To achieve our mission, MASFAA provides training opportunities for financial aid professionals, provides an atmosphere to develop networking and professional
relationships, serves as liaison between federal and state authorities and the financial aid community regarding student financial assistance and educational access, and enhances
public awareness of student financial aid assistance.
Simply put, MASFAA is here to serve both employees in the student financial aid industry and the high school students & parents of Mississippi.
If you’re a student or parent and would like to learn more on the college financial aid process, MASFAA would be happy to assist you with any questions.
To MASFAA members, I’m pleased to announce a “save-the-date” of May 23-25, 2012 for the annual MASFAA conference which will be held on campus at The Inn at Ole Miss.
