Our Financial Aid Counselor will serve students and parents on this important step in the journey for degree completion by counseling them on financial aid policies and procedures through personal appointments, walk-ins, phone calls and emailed messages. Our ideal candidate won't be stuck behind a desk for long. This position is also a representative of the University at on-campus and off-campus programs, including orientations, Life Skills, financial aid nights and college fairs, staffing the very popular financial aid booth and answering questions. If you're comfortable public speaking, then doing the presentation of financial aid information in a group setting will be part of the job that you enjoy. Finally, our candidate will be motivated to remain current on regulatory updates by attending training sessions and workshops and by maintaining membership in PASFAA and NASFAA.
Will have extensive knowledge of federal, state and institutional student aid regulations and procedures and be able to communicate that information to students and parents.
