A Design for a Model College Financial Aid Office.
Van Dusen, William D.; O'Hearne, John J.
This report discusses the current types of financial aid and the principles and practices that guide college financial aid programs. Although specific functions vary among institutions, the authors cite a common core of operational activities; counseling about student expenses and financial aid opportunities, general administration, student motivation and resources development, and research. They agree that centralization improves operational process. The authors encourage a good working relationship with off-campus agencies as well as the following university offices: advisory committees of faculty and staff; directors of registration, records, and data processing; dean of students' office; counseling, testing, and health centers; office of development; and office of alumni affairs. The report concludes with a discussion of application forms and of a central processing system for evaluating student need. (Authors/LAA)
