TASFAA'S Toolkit

TASFAA's Early Awareness committee has put together a TASFAA toolkit for TASFAA member institutions who wish to provide training to Guidance Counselors and other related parties. The toolkit contains all manner of outreach communications, presentation slides, and more! 

Early Awareness is more important than ever to ensure high school counselors in the state of Texas are equipped with information that will enable them to help students and families in applying for financial assistance.  You have the expertise in order to provide guidance and training to these counselors.
