Comprehensive applicant folder processing for the equitable and efficient distribution of financial aid.
If you’re like many financial aid professionals, applicant reviews are the bane of your existence. But, they don’t need to be. By establishing policies and implementing special folder review processes, we can help you make sound financial aid decisions by tailoring awards to unique family situations.
When folders are reviewed properly, you can save tens of thousands of dollars on your financial aid budget. We’re helping more than seventy schools do just that. In the 2023-24 financial aid season alone, our team of experienced professionals is reviewing over 15,000 applicant folders—conducting full audits from error corrections to proposed awards and parent outreach to obtain all necessary documentation. And when post-season arrives, audits can measure your program’s success and financial sustainability.
