What we did6 l.jpg
What we did

  • Shared Service Center for File Review

    • Federal Title IV is a standardized process

    • Ensure consistency of processing across campus = Ensure compliance

    • Ensure consistent student experience

    • Leverage economies of scale

    • Reduce need for hiring, staffing, retaining and training at each College

    • Leverage centralized people, process and technology

    • Colleges retain control of special cases, escalations, etc.

    • Outsourced process to Global FAS

Why we did it9 l.jpg
Why we did it

  • Regulatory Changes/Economic Factors

    • Percentage of applications selected for verification is increasing faster than total volume increase (approximately 55%, up from about 45% average for several years)

    • Increasing complexity of Pell regulations has decreased the ability to program automation

    • Increasing diversity between state and federal general eligibility criteria

  • Student Experience

    • 6-8 week file review backlog becoming norm - creating problems for tuition loss, student service and negative impact to College staff

    • Not intuitive process for students

    • File review paperwork is dropped off, sits in piles and has to be imaged, then manipulated and re-printed in another system

    • eConnect/MIL letter disconnect with File Review

    • MIL letters only every 30 days
