ED has posted the initial volume of the 2013-2014 “Federal Student Aid Handbook,” the “Application and Verification Guide” (AVG). It is intended for financial aid administrators and counselors who help students in completing the FAFSA initially and/or are involved in the verification and corrections process. Of importance is that it provides the EFC worksheets and the related tables for being able to calculate or analyze an EFC. The introduction to the AVG also highlights the changes that have been made in the Guide for 2013-2014.

Note: Federal Student Aid no longer offers printed copies of the Federal Student Aid Handbook.
