Handbook of Student Financial Aid: Programs, Procedures, and Policies.
Fenske, Robert H.; And Others
The full range of topics relevant to student financial aid are covered in this book by a variety of experts in financial aid administration and scholarship. The volume details how to organize, implement and assess a financial aid program--including how to determine student need, deal with student bankruptcy and aid termination, and improve efficiency in the student aid office. Eighteen chapters are divided into four major sections: (1) development, scope, and purposes of student aid; (2) delivering aid to students on campus; (3) ensuring effectiveness in administering aid programs; and (4) importance of aid in meeting student needs and institutional goals. Specific chapters include: "Purposes and Provisions of Federal Programs" (James W. Moore); "State Student Aid Programs" (Arthur S. Marmaduke); "Expanding and Utilizing Private and Institutional Sources of Aid" (Robert P. Huff); "Disseminating Information on Aid and Processing Aid Applications" (Norman E. Beck); "Determining Financial Need" (Joe Paul Case); "Staffing the Aid Office and Improving Professional Expertise" (Donald R. Ryan); "Evaluating and Improving Administration of Aid Programs" (A. Dallas Martin, Jr.); "Using Student Aid in Retention Efforts" (Leonard M. Wenc); "Legal Aspects of Administering Aid Programs" (Bruce M. Richardson); and "Future Directions of Student Aid" (Lawrence E. Gladieux). A selective guide to the literature is also included. (LB)
