A Design for a Model College Financial Aid Office.
VanDusen, William D.; O'Hearne, John J.
Much of the information used in this report on a model college financial aid office prepared for the Coordinating Board, Texas College and University System, was obtained from a survey conducted in 1965-66 by the Bureau of Applied Social Research of Columbia University. As part of the survey, questionnaires were sent to directors of financial aid at 1,094 regionally accredited, 4-year, degree-granting institutions. Usable responses were obtained from 849 and constitute the most current and comprehensive information available nationally about trends and activities in the administration of student financial aid. The report covers: development of aid programs and their current forms; a statement of the most widely accepted principles in financial aid administration; the need for centralization of operational activities in the aid office; the administrative structure of the aid office and the roles of faculty and staff advisory committee; the aid office's relations within the institution to faculty and academic activities, to the admissions office, business office, registration, records and data-processing offices, dean of students office, counseling, testing and health centers, and to the development and alumni offices. The report also discusses relations with off-campus agencies and individuals, such as secondary schools and community colleges, sponsors of funds, professional colleagues, and general office procedures, including administering aid applications and analyzing student needs.
