CASFAA Chronicle Submissions


CASFAA News is the publication of the California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and is sent to approximately 1,000 current CASFAA members.

There are many ways to be a part of the newsletter. Writing an article is a rewarding way to contribute to the financial aid community while enhancing your own professional development.

Readers often appreciate recommended resources, charts, checklists, case studies, tables or diagrams, quotations, or points highlighted for emphasis. If statistics or quotes are used to illustrate a point, the source should be mentioned within the text.

Members and non-members are encouraged to submit articles of interest directly to the editor for inclusion. Personal transitions such as promotions, new jobs, marriages, babies, awards, etc. are also welcomed. Accompanying digital photos and other artwork are strongly encouraged. All articles, transitions and photos are subject to editing, available space, and the acceptance policy.
