SERVICES

Successful financial aid processing is challenging and requires a significant amount of work and expertise to do correctly. For us, this type of work is a calling. Our ultimate goal is to improve process for the school which enhances the experience for the student.

We realize that any delay in processing can jeopardize a successful enrollment so, we work diligently to make the process as expeditious and seamless as possible, building relationships with our partnering schools and working as an extension of the school, not just a vendor. Learn More Here

College financial aid offices across the country are experiencing a severe shortage of staff and the current market for qualified financial aid candidates is incredibly competitive. To prevent unnecessary staff burnout, it’s more important than ever to offer additional support to your financial aid team. We provide remote staffing services and on-site support if required. Our model is unique in that it provides complete redundancy of coverage so that service never misses a beat due to unforeseen staffing vacancies for most any position in the financial aid department.

FA Solutions’ Student Experience Center (SEC) provides student services support which can include financial aid counseling, admissions assistance, and retention efforts. This team consists of financial aid and student services professionals who work as an extension of our school partners to provide high level, easy to reach, contact support for your students.

The SEC mission is to empower our school partners to have uninterrupted focus on the critical aspects of financial aid packaging, awarding, and verification that ensure that all students are served timely throughout the year, especially during peak processing when students typically experience the most significant delays.

Financial aid consulting should not be an intimidating service. We genuinely engage with a school as a partner in financial aid compliance to help ensure institutions are aware of and keeping current with new regulations and best practices. Our job is to identify if any deficiencies exist and help the college develop and implement a plan for resolution.

The candidate pool of experienced financial aid directors is incredibly competitive and because of this, many schools are appointing less experienced people to fill these very important roles. Unless there’s proper guidance and mentorship, this can place the school at risk for potential financial exposure and places an enormous pressure onto the new director to administer the complex and constantly changing regulatory environment.

“Vermont Law School is small mission-driven and student-centered institution. We didn’t want to work with a big consulting firm. FA Solutions provided us with the regulatory expertise, policy guidance, and personnel support to see us through a transition period. Rob, Annette, and the rest of their team felt like part of our family; always responsive and focused on student satisfaction.”
