Summary: You Have a New Schools Portal

Posted on 09-01-2002

Dear Partners:

FSA is pleased to announce the release of version 2.0 of the Schools Portal website ( Since the release of version 1.0 in March 2001, we have actively sought your feedback, comments and suggestions.

In addition, as you know, our organization’s name has changed. The old “Student Financial Assistance” is gone. We are now the “Federal Student Aid” programs. With our new name comes a new look. One we hope will provide a clear recognition of FSA and our association to the FAFSA process.

In line with your business, we are grouping our offerings by business function. We now group our links in the following categories: “Resources and Training”, “FAA Access to Student Data”, and “Participation and Funding”.

We’ve also made the FSA Headlines and FSA Calendar more prominent on the website. We work really hard to bring important dates and news items to your attention in these areas.

As always, your feedback is key to future enhancements. Please try out the new site and let us know what you think. You can contact the Schools Channel Customer Service Call Center (CSCC) via email at:, by phone on 1-800-433-7327, or by fax on (202) 275-5532. You can also send us your feedback, directly from the Schools Portal website via the “Feedback” button, which appears in the red horizontal bar near the top of the home page.

We hope you will find the new design an improvement in our offerings. We look forward to hearing your comments.
