Who Are We?

From the Four Corners to the US/Mexico border, New Mexico's college students are served by a diverse, energetic and compassionate group known as NMASFAA.

NMASFAA, or the New Mexico Association of Financial Aid Administrators was formed when financial aid administrators around the state came together to maximize resources, share knowledge and experiences of those serving the higher education field. Our goal, as individuals and a group is to assist New Mexico college students and their families by maximizing student financial aid opportunities while staying in compliance with the ever changing state and federal regulations.
