Information on the Office of Scholarships and Student Financial Aid of the University of Delaware is presented, based on a 1979-80 program review for the Council on Program Evaluation (COPE). The office's location in the University of Delaware's organization, sources of funding for the office, its major goals and purposes, and past and future directions of the office are identified. Additionally, the way that current and projected goals and purposes of the unit relate to the instructional, research, and service programs of the university is addressed. Six general functions of the financial aid office are outlined as follows: planning a program, communicating with the applicant, awarding the aid, reporting the activities of the aid program, evaluating the program, and keeping abreast of federal legislative and regulatory changes. Steps that occur in the student aid delivery system and the following parties who are typically involved in the delivery system are identified: the student, the high school guidance counselor, the centralized need analysis services, the federal and state governments, the commercial lending institutions, and the University of Delaware's Office of Financial Aid. Additionally, the financial aid office must perform numerous administrative, counseling, fiscal, and reporting procedures. Reporting and fiscal operations that have been developed to conform to the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program are outlined, and requirements for the Guaranteed Student Loan program are indicated. The relationship of the financial aid office to other university administrative units and its outside consulting, service, and other activities are considered. Information is also presented on personnel, evaluation activities of the office's functions, management of the office, and problem areas, and a program review questionnaire is included. (SW)
