A Letter from the President

Dear OASFAA Colleagues,

Welcome to the Oregon Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (OASFAA). We are a community of dedicated professionals committed to helping students achieve their dreams of higher education, even in the face of challenges.

As the President of OASFAA, I feel privileged to be a part of such an amazing organization that has been dedicated to providing exceptional guidance and support to our members for more than five decades. Our dedicated volunteers work diligently to ensure that our members receive the tools, resources, and training they need to provide top-quality financial aid services to students in Oregon. Together, we are committed to supporting students in achieving their academic dreams by making higher education more accessible and affordable.

Our mission is to inspire financial aid awareness, advocacy, and professional development among our members. We strive to create a supportive and inclusive community that fosters collaboration and promotes best practices in financial aid administration so that we can better serve students facing various challenges.

I’m excited to welcome you to our community, where you'll find encouragement, support, and guidance every step of the way. Together, we can help you achieve your professional goals and unlock a brighter future for our students.
