A Study of Program Management Procedures in the Campus-Based and Basic Grant Programs. Site Visit Report.
Ellis, Richard, Ed.; Puma, Michael, Ed.
Site visits to a sample of 173 colleges, universities, vocational-technical schools, and other postsecondary institutions--conducted to examine the procedures used to manage federal Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (BEOG) and campus-based student financial assistance programs--are summarized. This report deals only with the conduct of the research in the field, and focuses on a variety of anecdotal field work reports, documents, and other commentary. The first section deals with the implementation of the survey, including: sampling students and institutions, instrument development and testing, data collection procedures, complications encountered and remedied during the study, and exemplary operations. Part two includes interviews with senior academic officials and communications from students. The final section presents monographs prepared by two senior interviewers and additional comments by financial aid officers on student assistance systems, loan administration, aid officers, and program manipulation. It is noted that: senior academic officials believe federal aid programs have increased the diversity of their student body, and a significant number of students expressed dissatisfaction with the aid counseling. Exhibits include the interviewer training agenda, site completion form, and materials used by aid officers. Appendices provide instrumentation used in the survey, memoranda, a calendar of aid activities, and an example of a master financial aid record form. (LC)
