What You Need to Know about Financial Aid

The Charger Bulletin

By The Office of Financial Aid

We’re back! The Financial Aid Office’s Federal Work Study student workers, also known as “The Feds”, are back and ready to start the new school year off on the right foot. Who are “The Feds” you might ask yourself?

We are Federal Work Study students whose job is to reach out to students to answer their most pressing questions about financial aid and to keep everyone updated on important financial aid information, especially deadlines.

Shannon Tilly, Marissa Lewis, Erika Williams and David Dejean are the “Feds” for the 2012-13 academic year. Shannon will be writing articles for the newspaper, along with making sure that important announcements are heard on the radio station. Marissa will be working on creating the posters that will be hung in the different buildings on campus, along with the table top flyers in offices around campus. Erika is in charge of updating the Financial Aid Facebook Group.

Students can find us on Facebook by searching University of New Haven-Financial Aid Office or going to www.facebook.com/UNHFinancialAid.

David will be working on revamping the outside scholarship search program to make it available online! Keep your eyes open for information on this in the future!

Students should keep an eye out for posters that will be hung around campus with important information about financial aid. For example the Financial Aid Office will be putting up posters to remind UNH students of how important it is to file their FAFSA “on time” for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Reminders will also be sent out via e-mail, so it is very important that students regularly check their UNH e-mail. All financial aid communication will be sent to YOUR UNH e-mail, so feel free to forward the information to your parents!

If anyone has any questions regarding financial aid, our office is located in Maxcy Hall, Room 118B, so stop by and we will be happy to help you! You can also e-mail us at [email protected] regarding information you see in the newspaper, hear on the radio, see on posters or flyers around campus, or read on Facebook.

Please note this e-mail address is monitored by students and personal information should not be sent there.
