IMPORTANT: The Certified FAFSA Specialist Training and badging opportunity is closed, but MCAN feels strongly about sharing this valuable content with all practitioners who can benefit from it!

Significant changes to the financial aid process, including the new FAFSA and the introduction of the Michigan Achievement Scholarship, highlight the urgency and opportunity for high-quality training. MCAN and uAspire partnered to offer best-in-class training, support, and tools to better position practitioners to meet the unique needs of all Michigan students.
