  • President's Highlights - May - Mike Johnson

    On behalf of the 2016-17 Executive Council, committee chairs, and liaisons - thank you all for giving us the opportunity to serve you during the coming year.

    I've participated in two generations of WASFAA leadership and training. About 20 years ago I served on the Executive Council with Youlonda Copeland Morgan and Jerry Sims, taught at the Summer Institute with Julie Arthur and Sister Dale Brown, and did what we then called WASFAA/NASFAA Training with Nancee Langley.


  • President's Highlights - April - Barbara Bickett

    It seems like just last month that I was speaking to you at the WASFAA Conference in San Diego. This year has been a journey to move beyond my boundaries. I have had the tremendous pleasure and opportunity to travel to several of our state conferences, and other regional conferences, representing WASFAA and learning and sharing our organization's core values.

    Talking Points for Hill Visits 2016

WASFAA is pleased to pass along CASFAA's news announcing the ever popular "Tax Transcript Decoder©" courtesy of our esteemed colleague and lifetime member of CASFAA Cheryl Foster-Hunt.


The tax transcript decoder assists financial aid administrators with completing the verification process for 2016-2017. This publication includes sample 2015 tax returns - Form 1040EZ, Form 1040A and Form 1040 - and related tax transcripts. In addition to these cross-referenced documents, the publication also includes appendix items helpful in the process of verification. Please feel free to share this useful tool with other schools.

A little bit about the Decoder's creator: Cheryl has worked in the financial aid industry for 27 years. For the past 11 years she has provided regulatory and compliance training to higher education professionals across the country. She is a versatile training professional who excels at taking complex information and presenting it in an easy-to-understand, interesting and entertaining way. Cheryl has an uncommon blend of hands-on experience in the financial aid office, strong public speaking skills and the ability to develop and deliver high quality training.

If you have any questions for Cheryl, please feel free to email her at cheryl.hunt1487@gmail.com or send her a message through LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/cherylhunt1487.
