National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators
NASFAA is a national association of college and university financial aid professionals. The “parents and students” section offers in-depth information on such topics as college savings plans, the federal student loan application process (FAFSA), aid for students with disabilities, and aid for veterans. Their “Guide to Higher Education Tax Benefits” is one of the best available.

Federal Student Aid, an office of the U.S. Department of Education, ensures that all eligible individuals can benefit from federally funded financial assistance for education beyond high school. We consistently champion the promise of post-secondary education to all Americans —and its value to our society.
