Welcome to the COSUAA website!

The Coalition of State University Aid Administrators (COSUAA) is a non-profit organization whose membership consists of the chief student financial aid administrators at public four-year universities with enrollments of 10,000 or more students. Organized in 1992, COSUAA has 130 members representing most of the premier public universities in the nation. Our campuses are leaders in teaching, research and public engagement. Last year, COSUAA institutions enrolled more than 3.7 million students.

COSUAA’s mission is to provide a national forum on student aid issues and topics, share ideas and assist member institutions in promoting and developing effective financial aid programs and practices, and promoting the professional preparation and effectiveness of our members. Each year, we host an annual conference to meet this mission. We are proud of our tradition of inviting nationally-known and respected speakers to cover a broad range of financial aid issues and higher education policy matters as well as providing the opportunity for our members to share ideas and best practices.

This website is designed for our members and is intended to provide information about COSUAA, our services, and our conferences. Thanks to Michelle Trame and the University of Illinois for maintaining our website.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as COSUAA National Chair. Please let me know if you have suggestions on how COSUAA can better serve you and our membership.

2019-21 COSUAA National Chair
