RESOURCE /  WEBINAR

Preparing For FAFSA Simplification On Your Campus

The new FAFSA form becomes available on October 1 – is your campus ready? 


Join Ardeo on Thursday, September 29 @ 12 p.m. EDT, for a discussion about the upcoming FAFSA simplification changes and what you need to know now to prepare.


Alex DeLonis, Director of Financial Aid at Wabash College and a member of the FAFSA Simplification Implementation Working Group, will deep-dive into the form changes and answer any questions you may have. 


During the webinar, we will discuss:

  • What the changes mean for your financial aid offices this year in preparation for the 2024-25 FAFSA award year.
  • What the Student Aid Index (SAI) is, an overview of the methodology, and how SAI differs from EFC.
  • Changes to Pell Grant eligibility.
  • How the FAFSA changes affect your prospective students and families.
  • What resources are available to assist institutions in navigating these significant changes.
