New Aid Officers Workshop (NAOW)

NAOW is a safe learning environment where new financial aid officers, from all Texas colleges (public, private, two and four year, technical and graduate/ professional), can take back with them gained financial aid knowledge from industry experts on a variety of topics such as:

  • Aid Application Process and Eligibility
  • Verification
  • Need Analysis (all attendees will perform and EFC calculation)
  • Professional Judgment
  • Satisfactory Academic Progress
  • And many more!


The theme for 2020 is "Surviving in the Wilderness." If you want your new financial aid staff to gain invaluable job knowledge while afterwards going for a ride on a water slide, or you are a seasoned financial officer that wouldn’t mind a refresher while watching others go down a water slide, the New Aid Officers Workshop is the perfect choice!
