2020-21 FAFSA/ORSAA Mentor Training 

Thank you for your interest in training to become and even more effective FAFSA or ORSAA volunteer. As the professional association of financial aid administrators, we’re so happy that you’re committed to helping students and families complete the forms correctly the first time. 

We’ve set up this training to be on-demand- you are welcome to take as much time as you’d like on each module. Once you’ve completed our nine Core Videos, please take our certification test. You’ll receive a PDF certificate that declares you to be an OASFAA Certified FAFSA/ORSAA Completion Mentor for 2020-21. Since there’s so much detail to remember, we’ve included short links to each video at the bottom of this page. You’re welcome to come back and view the videos as many times as you’d like, especially if you’re dealing with a new situation. 

To access our video training, please use this link to get to our YouTube Playlist.
