The Future of Student Financial Aid and the Mission of the College Scholarship Service. A Discussion Paper Prepared for the 1985 Regional Assemblies of the College Board and CSS Assembly.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY. Coll. Scholarship Service.
The ways in which the College Scholarship Service (CSS) can build its action agenda for the year 2000 are considered, based on concerns identified at a 1984 meeting of the CSS, a part of the College Entrance Examination Board. The following issues, taken from the meeting's official "Statement", are addressed: the goals of student aid, the shared responsibility for educational financing, information for students and families, delivery system improvements, college costs, the role of the financial aid administrator, the changing environment of student financial aid, and immediate challenges facing CSS. Information is needed about academic preparation, costs, aid, and available financing alternatives. One question that needs to be addressed is the extent to which student aid is helping to advance educational opportunity. CSS can facilitate the development of services, publications, and other activities that relate the financial and academic aspects of college planning. It can also provide useful analytic information about the implications of college costs that could assist aid administrators and other educators concerned about cost containment. Additional roles for the CSS are recommended. Appendices include the statement of the 1984 CSS meeting on which this paper is based, a list of meeting participants, and a list of 1984-1985 CSS Council members. (SW)
