Highland Community College’s Joshua North Earns Designation as Certified Financial Aid Administratorpublished December 6, 2019
Joshua North, Director of Financial Aid at Highland Community College, has earned the designation of Certified Financial Aid Administrator (CFAA®) from the independent certifying body of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA). The certification covers the foundational knowledge and skills to administer Title IV federal student aid programs at colleges and universities across the country. North is just one of 100 CFAA’s in the country.
North said of the designation, “The financial aid process, for many, is an intimidating topic. Earning a CFAA designation gives me the tools to make a complicated part of higher education easier for students and parents.”
North has been at Highland for just over three years and was also recently recognized as a Rising Star within the Kansas Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. He is also the current Vice President of the Rocky Mountain Association for Student Financial Aid Administrators.
